Congratulations Shreveport-Bossier, we did it, we were successful in attracting Torchy's Taco, aren't you happier knowing that we have the power to attract some of our favorites? We don't have to drive to Tyler, Texas to get our trailer trash taco fix. There is power in telling a company to move to your town.

Look at what happened with LuLu Lemon, their "pop-up" shop has basically become a permanent storefront. If we get something we like in Shreveport-Bossier we support it. Don't you think there are other businesses that could come into town and make us all even happier than we are? I am a huge fan of Whole Foods, I always purchase 365 products, however, if you are not careful that price at the checkout line gets insane.

I love Trader Joe's. The coffee selection, the hummus, the cookie butter, so many delicious items, and most of the time I am shocked at the checkout line. I am convinced it's going to be super expensive and then my bank account gives me the green light when the total comes up. Trader Joe's is always a win. I am sick of having to drive to Little Rock or Dallas just to be able to shop at Trader Joe's

There's a Facebook group in Shreveport dedicated to bringing Trader Joe's to the SBC. Did you know all we have to do is request a Trader Joe's? Many community groups are trying to ban together to make it happen. Including several members from the South Highlands neighborhood. You can fill out a request to bring Trader Joe's by clicking here.

I recently got to thinking, why are we hyper-focused on bringing Trader Joe's to Shreveport? Why not North Bossier? We have so many areas of Airline and Benton that would be perfect for Trader Joe's. Let's keep Whole Foods in Shreveport and bring Trader Joe's to Bossier.
