Submitting my votes for both Trader Joe’s and Jungle Jim’s! We do all our main shopping at Trader Joe’s each month, with only minor purchases at Kroger for produce as needed, milk and dog food. Found Trader Joe’s while living in Tempe, AZ, and have been happy as clams that we now have one in the Columbus, OH, area.
As for Jungle Jim’s, it is truly a destination for a wonderful shopping experience. Never have seen anything like it and probably never will. It is such fun that my husband and son enjoy going with my daughter-in-law and me, just slowly wondering around the store, looking at everything, trying samples of so many things, learning about the really exotic items offered….it is fabulous. Have a trip planned there for the middle of October. We do make it an outing for the four of us a couple of times a year, taking along a cooler to bring back goodies we would never, ever find in Columbus.
