According to the city, Trader Joe’s was one of the top requested businesses. The city has pursued Trader Joe’s for more than 10 years.

Through the company’s longstanding Neighborhood Shares Program, the new Murrieta Trader Joe’s will donate 100% of unsold products to various non-profit, community-based organizations seven days a week.
