A favorite store among many Americans, a new Trader Joe’s opened in One Loudoun on Sept. 6, making it Loudoun County’s first ever Trader Joe’s. Since the store opened, people from all over the county have gone to shop there, many of them having never been to a Trader Joe’s before. Months before the store even opened, there was excitement and anticipation buzzing in the air over small talk of Loudoun getting its first Trader Joe’s. Now, this possibility is a reality.


Trader Joe’s official opening in One Loudoun met no shortage of people there to see its doors open to the public for the first time. But what is it about Trader Joe’s that makes it a favorite?

The Visuals

Upon first glance, the environment and scenery in Trader Joe’s is very visually appealing. Its open floor plan makes it seem bigger, brighter, and more welcoming. Surprisingly for some people, its visual aspect is a major factor into why people find Trader Joe’s so great.

The Prices

There are many things that make Trader Joe’s so unique and different from typical grocery stores. For one, Trader Joe’s prices are fairly decent for higher quality food.

“Well, it has really great prices, and the food looks good, so, so far I really like it.” A customer shopping at Trader Joe’s for the first time added.

The Variety

In addition to lower prices, customers are also benefited from the plentiful coupons that Trader Joe’s accepts. However, what most attracts people to Trader Joe’s is the food. From delectable baked goods, to fresh fruits and veggies, to a variety of cheeses, Trader Joe’s has pretty much everything.

“What I love most about Trader Joe’s is their food. They always have a good variety of food, plus their packages are better for the environment,” a regular customer of Trader Joe’s commented, cart full of food.

The Quality

The variety of food is certainly one of the factors that contributes to the store’s popularity, and it helps that the food is of good quality.

“I like that there is always healthy and fresh food available,” another customer, Megan, added. “Sometimes they include recipes on packages.” Quirky additions, such as recipes and aesthetic signs, add to the appeal.

Since there are so many great things about Trader Joe’s, it’s difficult to pinpoint what exactly it is that draws people to it most. However, there is one overarching aspect that most people seem to agree upon, which is that Trader Joe’s has good products for good prices. A Trader Joe’s in Loudoun County was long overdue, but a great addition nonetheless.
