We do have a lot of name brand big box stores in Bozeman. Costco, a super Walmart, Olive Garden, Staples, Target, Kohl’s, etc.

What Are We Missing?

We always say we moved to Montana to get away from the place we came from — not bring it here with us.

However, some of us feel the need to have some things we enjoyed in our previous old hometowns.

My wife really wants a Red Lobster in Bozeman. In our previous hometown we dined there often.

While we do have a Bar-3 Bar-b-q and Famous Dave’s, I’d really like to see a Tony Roma restaurant too.

There are many companies around the country that become tradition to some families.

Cracker Barrel, Chuck E. Cheese, In & Out Burger, Steak N Shake, are all names everyone knows from travels around the US.

One Name Stands Out

Trader Joe’s. If you’ve ever been traveling and saw a Trader Joe’s there’s an irresistible impulse to go in and check it out.

Trader Joe’s is full of cool stuff from around the world that you don’t find in your big box name stores.

They started packaging innovative, hard-to-find, great-tasting foods under the “Trader Joe’s” name.

If Trader Joe’s doesn’t have it you probably don’t need it anyway. It’s the Wall Drug of tourist destinations.

If you want a Trader Joe’s in Bozeman why not request one? Yes, Trader Joe’s has a page where you can request that they consider Bozeman, Montana for a future location.

You can check it out HERE.

It sure can’t hurt to let the powers that be know that you’d like a Trader Joe’s somewhere in the Bozeman area.

Some Final Thoughts

You have to hand it to a company that’s willing to let you find their locations based on popularity.

So I guess we need a grass roots, ground swell, of support for our very own Trader Joe’s. Are you a fan?

Or, do we have too many big name places ruining our western landscape?

What’s your opinion on a Trader Joe’s in Bozeman?
