I admit I enjoy and probably eat too many Traders Joe’s Non-pareils — they are delicious. I found out they were discontinuing this item, and I immediately wrote a letter to Trader Joe’s. Within 24 hours the Oak Park manager, Gregg, called me. He had found 10 packages at the Hyde Park Trader Joe’s. He proceeded to pick up the packages and bring them to the Oak Park store for me to purchase.

What a treasure Trader Joe’s is to our community. Where else do you find employees who are so committed to such amazing customer service — a rare exception in the world today. My hope is that other residents realize what riches we have right here. It is nice to celebrate goodness.
