Trader Joe's is known for its slightly off-banter marketing and unique assortment of domestic and imported foods, including 3,000 items under their own private label, including Two Buck Chuck wine that costs $3.00.

This will make the ninth store in Texas, with another slated for Katy, Texas, outside of Houston. In the North Texas area, there's the recently opened store on Lower Grenville, Plano and a new store in North Dallas at Walnut Hill Lane that should open mid-2014.
