One of the things I miss the most about living somewhere other than Lubbock, is having a Trader Joe’s.

Not only do they have a lot of unique food that other stores don’t, but they have great gluten-free and vegan options, and they avoid things like artificial colors, artificial flavors, GMOs, and more. While we do have Sprouts in Lubbock, which also sells a lot of these kinds of products, there is just something special about Trader Joe’s.

Plus, I miss being able to easily buy my favorite salsa without having to stock up any time I’m in a city with one of their stores.

As of May 2022, we know that they currently have no plan to come to Lubbock or any surrounding areas. However, that doesn’t mean we can’t keep trying.

Fortunately, they have a way to request a store for your city on their official website. You simply enter your name, email, state, and city, and keep your fingers crossed. Who knows, maybe if we all come together and continue to pester them, they’ll have to come to the Hub City.

There is plenty of space in south Lubbock to build the store, or even toward the west side of the city. I know there are a couple of large properties around Upland and 34th that would be prime real estate. It could go next to or across from that new Pak-A-Sak location that should hopefully be starting construction soon.
