The previous tenant in my apartment subscribed to the Trader Joe’s Flyer, so once a month I get the thing in my mailbox.  And every time it makes me laugh.  I just don’t get it.  It’s like a Dickens novel or something.  Get over yourself Trader Joe’s.  Who do you think you are?  I’ve got news for you, you’re a grocery store.  Your flyer should have 2 things: pictures and prices, and that’s it.  It shouldn’t take more than a minute to read the whole thing, and that’s probably even too long.  People barely read the New York Times anymore, why does Trader Joe’s think anybody wants to read 3 paragraphs of news print about their barrel aged gold balsamic vinegar?
