TYPROs Continue Push For Trader Joe's In Downtown Tulsa

Posted: Updated:

Green Country headed into the Brady District for a taste of Trader Joe's on Saturday.

The Tulsa Young Professionals (TYPROs) distributed food from Trader Joe's that people ordered a while back.

Trader Joe's is a national grocery chain that focuses on healthy food at a good price. There's not one in the state right now.

Some Tulsans are trying to change that and push for a big grocery store downtown.

"Our hope is that whether or not Trader Joe's comes to town, hopefully we can highlight the need for it here," Tulsa Young Professionals member Brian Paschal said.

Not one, but two locally owned downtown grocery stores were set to open more than a year ago.

But work has been delayed and neither is ready for shoppers yet.
