Make your voice heard for a Trader Joe's locally

I recently visited Asheville, N.C., with friends. While there, we shopped at a Trader Joe's, a store that we all miss since moving here 12 years ago. I asked a store employee about the best way to get a Trader Joe's store in our area. He said that Asheville has a population of about 80,000, similar to the combined population of Beaufort, Bluffton, Hardeeville and Hilton Head. Asheville residents helped catch the attention of Trader Joe's management when 10,000 of them "friended" Trader Joe's on the store's Facebook page.
