Trader Joe's Tempest in a Tote Bag


Over the weekend, a shopper at the New Trader Joe's in Germantown noticed her complimentary tote bag read Nashville.

Nashville! Oh, dear.

Read the thread, folks, it is hilarious.

But then. THEN. Someone from a Trader Joe's fan page suggested that it took a while for stores to earn their bags. What-the-what?
Here's Trader Joe's response:

We don’t have an official stance on this, and the Facebook post was not made on behalf of Trader Joe’s.

We are thrilled to be in Germantown, and we can assure anyone concerned that there was no hidden message in our bag giveaway. Not every region has its own, area-specific bag (yet, anyway!), but customers are welcome to return to the store and trade their complementary Nashville bags for complementary, non-location-specific TJ's bags—our Crew will be happy to assist.
