Former Trader Joe’s Exec Opens Super-Cheap Nonprofit Supermarket
On Thursday, June 4, a nonprofit grocery store called the Daily Table opened in Dorchester, Mass. The new store is notable for two main reasons: 1) It’s the baby of Doug Rauch, the former president of Trader Joe’s, which was recently named among America’s favorite supermarkets; and 2) The prices of many items are incredibly affordable.
Here is a sampling of expected prices at the Daily Table, according to the trade publication Supermarket News:
8 oz. frozen okra: 29¢
8 oz. frozen corn: 39¢
Can of tuna: 55¢
Box of cereal: 70¢
Dozen eggs: $1.19
