Trader Joe’s to Kansas City: Drop Dead
In the two weeks since I first blogged about the Facebook petition to bring Trader Joe’s to Kansas City, the group number has jumped by over 1,000 people. It’s clear that Kansas Citians are desperate for a Trader Joe’s, and group founder Rachel Perry Hanses has organized people to write Trader Joe’s, twitter Trader Joe’s and repeatedly put Kansas City on the Web site’s location requester.
So it’s with a saddened heart that I say these requests have largely fallen on deaf ears. I called Trader Joe’s spokesperson Alison Mochizuki yesterday to see what the company makes of all this activity.
