Truth be told, the nearby one where I grew up in Claremont,CA has a mural of Rush and hometown singer songwriter, Ben Harper.  Thanks for the quality prices for organics...and the food and coffee samples.  RIP

It's to the point I hit a TJ's once a week along with a regular grocery store, just based on the quality of a lot of their goods. A lotofthe founder's foresight had to have gone into that.

RIP, Joe.

There’s used to be one in my city and it’s an Aldi now.  Sprouts is closest to me which is nice since they offer natural hygiene products.  I use their sea salt deodorant spray.  Whole Foods just opened nearby at the 201 freeway on the LA/Berdu county border.  Been there once and you’re not missing anything.  Sprouts and Trader has a better atmosphere anyways.  Whole is too state of the art.
