Why? I love Trader Joe’s here in California. But there’s already three or four HEBs around Harlingen. They don’t even carry fresh produce. Why doesn’t the HEDC spend more energy trying to bring high-tech and manufacturing jobs to Harlingen ? Why don’t they spend more time trying to retain all the high achieving kids who go on to study science, medicine, and engineering ?

Trader Joes is awesome i love it ! Shopped there all time before i moved to the valley... cheap produce and meat market .. love it and wine selection is great! Frankly i dont shop HEB .. i go to Sprouts in McAllen..

Love Trader Joe's - I hope they do come to Harlingen!!

I signed the request. While I’m out of town in Austin, Houston or San Antonio I stock up is at Trader Joe’s before I head home. They’re food is good, healthy and gluten free! Which I love!

I would welcome a new grocery shopping experience to Harlingen. A change would be wonderful from only having HEB & Walmart to choose from.

Yes, that would be so awesome!! 😊

For the love of culture. Yes please.

Yes, love Trader Joe’s.

Yes bring traders joe to Harlingen

Harlingen also needs some better restaurants- PF Chang’s Pappadeaux Red Robin Cheesecake Factory would be a good start— would love to see a pretty shopping area with restaurants like La Cantera in San Antonio or even like The one McAllen has by the convention center—

I've been asking them for 20 years to come to Harlingen, hopefully they'll listen this time. 🤞

We definitely need a Trader Joe's, miss it since we moved back from California! What was I thinking moving back!!!

YES PLEASE !!!!’ So excited over even the idea!!!!

The only thing you can buy in a HEB store is HEB items, we need competition.

I’m in!! Would love to shop at Trader Joe’s

Yes, yes and yes...please!

Yes, please! I might actually shop in the grocery store again. HEB has a monopoly down here and the experience is terrible.

Need a Trader Joe's, a Central Market and a Barnes and Noble!

How about McAllen?

Trader Joe’s is not cheap. We couldn’t keep Dillard’s, Sears, Payless supported. What makes you think we can support a Trader Joe’s.?

Whatttt!!! Yes please!!

Love this store.. Hope Soo!!!!

Trader Joe's does carry fresh produce. I might say also that its yummy. Good competition will not hurt anyone. The better the produce and the less expensive produce the better. Unfortunately that's not realistic. Mexico is cheap and close. All other produce would have to be trucked in and that's costly too. Ugh. See what's happened to our local farmers?

Would also like to have an IKEA, an Apple, Inc, as well as a large bookstore like Barnes and Noble or Books-a-Million!
