I learned on my very first Trader Joe’s trip in New York City that attempting to do my weekly grocery haul at 5 p.m. on a Sunday was a rookie mistake. Not only is there an obscenely long checkout line that snakes throughout the aisles, but there’s also a trail of people just waiting to step foot in the store.
Alas, I had an empty fridge, so I waited in line(s) … only to find that three crucial items on my list (baby carrots, hummus, and all variations of non-frozen chicken) were already out of stock. Yes, chicken! The trip was a total bust.
