My Wish List

OK - the South Hills, and Lebo in particular, really does have it all - well almost in my opinion. Granted, I got a little spoiled by the big city amenities I enjoyed in my previous home bases of NYC and San Francisco. However, Lebo has turned out to be a great compromise - and in many ways is a much more suitable and certainly hassle-free place to live than either of those places....and it's certainly top-notch for raising kids. BUT, if I had to make a wish list for our little corner of Pittsburgh, it would contain one thing - TRADER JOE'S!!! I am thrilled that we finally have one in the city, but, boy, wouldn't it be great not to have to make the schlep over to Penn Ave for all of my favorite TJ's gourmet delights??? For those of you who know about Trader Joes, I'm sure you understand what I'm talking about. For those of you who haven't had the TJ's experience - it's a must! Fabulous gourmet and much organic food at amazing prices. I've made it a habit of frequently going to the TJ's website www.traderjoes.com and sending them pleading messages to consider bringing Trader Joe's to the South Hills. A friend of mine in Cleveland did the same thing and it worked! Maybe, just maybe, if enough of us do the same, I just might get my wish list fulfilled!!! It would be a major "score" for all of us!

  1. I've been doing the same thing. Glad I'm not the only one! I've also frequently sent messages to Target, Old Navy and Whole Foods!

  2. I would be happy with either Target or Trader Joe's in the old Boscov's space at South Hills Village Mall. Surely I'm not the only one who's thought of this...wouldn't either of those stores be a HUGE hit the minute they opened their doors?

  3. Elaine- I have sent the same message to Target a number of times about the South Hills Village! It would be so much better than having to head all the way out to Robinson or Pleasant Hills! - Bonnie Dougherty

  4. A Target that is closer by would be a dream-come-true as well!!! Perhaps a letter-writing campaign or petition is in order!!!! I'm game! Power to the people!

  5. Yes, Target in the old Boscov's space! I say that all the time. It would be awesome.

    And I do miss living right around the corner from Trader Joe's in East Liberty. I swore when I moved to Lebo I would still go there, but I've only been a handful of times in the last two years. I have heard rumors of TJ's going in near Robinson.

  6. That's a fantastic idea for Trader Joe's or a Target. I'm hoping for a Trader's! I try to go there at least once a month. Too bad they can't sell wine.

  7. There is a very big space where Giant Eagle used to be on Sleepy Hollow Road. It would be perfect for a Trader Joe's ( I go there often) or an Aldi's. I just don't think that GE would sell to a competing store so it will sit empy.
