Did You Know That Trader Joe’s Sells Alcohol At 7 Massachusetts Store Locations?

Trader Joe's aficionados, did you know that there are seven locations that sell alcohol in Massachusetts? Out of twenty-one total locations in the Commonwealth, only seven lucky ones give you the option to pick up a bottle of wine or a six-pack alongside your favorite snacks. I have a cottage in West Yarmouth and my husband loves the Trader Joe's Cold Brew. So, I went to stock up for our cottage while we were on vacation. When I finally got to the other end of the store I noticed some ice-cold IPA's in the display cooler. As I turned to my right, there was an entire row of alcohol. Beer and wine filled both aisles. There was even a "French Reds" section. How fancy! [caption id="attachment_1117088" align="alignnone" width="2016"] But not at ALL of their locations!
