    Episode 41: Value and the Supply Chain at Trader Joe's

    16:35

    Value – it’s always a good time to talk about value. Look around your neighborhood Trader Joe’s and you’ll see value on every shelf, every day. Those values don’t happen by accident; they’re the result of our Buying Philosophy in action. (Yes, we’re a grocery store with a philosophy.) What does that Buying Philosophy mean to you and how does it impact what you pay at the cash register? This episode of Inside Trader Joe’s goes inside the Buying Philosophy – why we do it, how it works, and most importantly, what it means for you at the cash register, every time you shop.   Transcript (PDF)
