Trader Joe's has nine locations in Connecticut: Danbury, Darien, Fairfield, Glastonbury, Manchester, Orange, Stamford, West Hartford, and Westport. I understand that the company intentionally builds out small spaces for a more intimate shopping experience, but the volume at each of their stores easily matches what's coming in and out of your average Stop & Shop or Whole Foods. My wife and I love shopping there, but both of us have come away from a recent trip saying 'Never again'. The energy radiating off so many angry drivers is overwhelming.
