Brooklyn Trader Joe's Having Trouble Restocking Shelves After Holiday Rampage

We tried shopping in Trader Joe's right before Christmas. Whoa! Words can't describe the mob. We never actually got into the store.

Went back yesterday and discovered that the store is still out of quite a few items -- whole wheat pita and frozen Naan bread, for example. 

This post on the Pardon me for Asking Blog provides photos of the even emptier shelves earlier this week.

Anyway, we recommend the new early 8 a.m. shopping hour. The store was blissfully uncrowded and the lines almost nonexistent. We loaded up on the items they did have, including some pretty convincing imitation meat stuff, crab cakes and vegetable gyozas.
