Pirate Joe's

8am-8pm 7 Days. Café in September!

Pirate Joe's is an unaffiliated unauthorized re-seller of Trader Joe's products (we were sued, they lost, they appealed, they won a second try). We stock what we are asked to stock by Trader Joe's lovers who don't always have the time (or a car or a passport) to head south to Bellingham (the nearest Trader Joe's). We buy retail from Trader Joe's then import everything legally and add Canadian compliant ingredient and nutrition facts labels. We have to pay the rent and the help (and the label supplier), so prices are about 30-40 percent higher than at Trader Joe's. We also import other brands Canadians are duped out of. If you have a request we can usually get it for you within a week (no cheese - call your representative in government). 

 If you sign up here we will email when the café starts up. 

We found a fantastic space on West 10th just west of Alma - the same block as Rufus Drums, Folk Art , 4Cats and Nourish.  The building was a wreck (you get what you pay for) so it took three and a half months to sort it out. We re-opened July 21st. We were and are not fully loaded but we got open which we think was a good idea (rent due on the first).

Here is are the progress shots:
