The NewTrader Joe's in Chico

I just got back from the Trader Joe's that opened today here in Chico. That was a mistake (not that they finally built a store here, but that I tried to shop there on the opening day). It was crowded as hell and people were backed up with their shopping carts all the way to the back of the store. It would have been at least a 45 min. wait to get to a register to buy anything.

I had been watching the classified ads in the ER closely, waiting for a sign from Trader Joe's that they were ready for job applicants for the Chico store. About three weeks ago I checked their web site and it said for people to apply in person at the store. The store wasn't even open so I don't know how anyone was supposed to apply. When I was there today I asked for an application and they said they were fully staffed and had received a record number of applicants - over 600. Fuck. :(
