For those of you who can't let go of the idea of Trader Joe's ...

We managed to stir up some excitement last fall after reporting that a mysterious "specialty grocery store" had called the city of Idaho Falls' assistant planning director Brad Cramer about our area. Who could it be? By far, the biggest number of wishful thinkers said they wanted to see Trader Joe's come to town.

We spoke to Trader Joe's at the time and they told us they planned 18 months in advance. There were no plans for a store in Idaho Falls in that window. That means you'll have to get your Two-Buck Chuck from your friends or relations or hit the road for California, which is never a bad idea.

Nothing has changed since then, but for those of you who can't let go I want to offer you this link I found: http://www.traderjoes.com/stores/coming-soon.asp.

And here's a link to a review of the best and worst of Trader Joe's, which I found entertaining: http://www.thedailymeal.com/best-and-worst-products-trader-joes/4472/comment/reply/21182?utm_source=Outbrain
