From the Daily News:
A group of Astoria residents wants Trader Joe’s to peddle its arugula pizza and mini chicken tacos — as well as its cheap, fresh produce — closer to home.
Ran Craycroft, founder of the Why Leave Astoria? blog, asked readers last week to fill out an online form on the company’s website requesting to bring the food emporium, known for its low prices and high-quality products, to the neighborhood.
Craycroft says he has received thousands of responses through Facebook, emails and comments on the blog, many in favor of the grocery franchise.
“It’s something people can really get behind and are very passionate about,” he said.
THIS people can get behind? Ask them to come out to a rally for or against any civic cause and they're home watching American Idol and dreaming of fancy lettuce from a big box store. Pretty pathetic, eh?
