Trader Joe’s is an American chain of grocery stores that has its headquarters in Monrovia, California. By 2015, it got into competition in fresh format grocery stores in the United States. By November 2019, Trader Joe’s had more than 503 stores nationwide in 42 states and Washington, D.C.
The founder Joe Coulombe opened the first Joe’s store in 1967, in Pasadena, California. It was owned by German entrepreneur Theo Albrecht from 1979 until his death in 2010. After that, the ownership passed to his sons. Albrecht’s family also owns the German supermarket chain ALDI Nord, to which Trader Joe’s belongs. Another Aldi company, Aldi Süd, also operates in the U.S. but uses the Aldi name and logo. The company has offices in Monrovia, and Boston, Massachusetts.
