Yup, that. Their produce is a lot cheaper than WF or Metcalfe's, and often as good or better. I go to TJ's for produce, nuts, orchids, and a few staples like coconut oil and their amazing orange blossom honey hand soap.
But I have strong brand loyalty with things like canned tomatoes and beans, dairy, paper products, etc., so I usually can't do a full trip there. Oh, and meat, Metcalfe's all the way. Love those butchers.
