Trader Joe's completed the first weekend of business in Colorado, with three new stores in Denver, Boulder and Greenwood Village. Trader Joe's plans to open a fourth store in Denver at 7th & Logan.
Sure to become any foodie's favorite stores, the California-based Trader Joe's is popular far and wide for wine, specialty foods and also affordable fresh flowers.
Trader Joe's sells gorgeous, greenhouse-grown tulips from northern California. Trader Joe's reports, "Because their growing environment is completely, controlled, they tend to have a very long vase life."
For just $5.99 per bunch of ten, these hearty tulip bouquets make an ideal gift for a love one. Or spruce up your home or office with a colorful spark of early spring. Fresh tulips are beautiful in all their stages, from tight turbans to fully-opened with petals revealing intricate interior designs. Tulips are the perfect antidote to winter. And fresh flowers can improve our health, according to Dr. Andrew Weil. Flower are not frivolous: Why you should treat yourself to fresh blooms.
Trader Joe's is very popular, so prepare yourself for crowds, lines, and also a wonderful new shopping experience in Colorado.
