On August 23rd, Turlock community members will continue to campaign to “Bring Trader Joe’s to Turlock” as they participate in their second Turlock shopping day at the Modesto store.
Campaign leaders hope people will continue supporting the Turlock effort to bring Trader Joe’s to town by asking people to do three simple things in the next couple of weeks, one task people need to do every day to grab the attention of the Trader Joe’s executives.
First, the group asks people to shop at Trader Joe’s in Modesto on Monday, August 23rd from 4-9 pm. Turlockers need to show the Trader Joe’s corporate folks Turlock residents are a “purchasing powerhouse!” This part of the campaign wants to show a huge increase in sales that Monday night and continue to shop on certain nights to prove Turlock has the dollars to back up building a Trader Joe’s in Turlock. People are asked to print out a graphic off their website, "Turlock hearts Trader Joe’s" button, and wear it to the store on Monday.
Nellie Lazar or Mary Jackson will be outside to tally up how much people spent and then we’ll send the total from August 23rd to corporate headquarters. Make sure you tell the cashier you live in Turlock or nearby and would love to have a Trader Joe’s in Turlock.
According to the campaign website, Turlock needs to show at least a $5,000 increase in sales during the 4-9 pm Turlock shops Trader Joe’s period, so everyone is asked to tell everyone they know to stop by and spend some money. The effort needs 50 people to spend $100 or 100 people to spend $50.
Second, the campaign states that after talking discreetly to several management types in different areas, this is one of the most important things Turlock residents need to do…Go either to the www.bringtraderjoes.com or www.traderjoes.com websites (http://www.traderjoes.com/about/location-requests-form.asp) to request a store in Turlock. Turlock needs 100 people to do this every day. Campaign leaders have been told that by doing this, as well as the special shopping day, Turlock will be noticed. So tech savvy Turlock residents, go online and ask for Trader Joe’s to come to Turlock.
The “Bring Trader Joe’s to Turlock” campaign stresses how important it is to do this every day.
