Letter: Trader Joe's makes America kind again

May 17, 2017

My wallet was stolen out of my purse, which was on my shoulder, at the Lynnwood Trader Joe's today – Monday, May 15.

By the time I realized what had happened, the thieves had used my credit cards to “purchase” - that's another story - over $7,000 worth of merchandise at the Lynnwood Target store in a matter of 10-15 minutes.

It's a sad story that plays out many times a day everywhere in this country.

The kindness part followed, with Trader Joe's offering to deliver my groceries – a full cart – to my home, and at no charge to me. I almost cried at this gesture.

I declined their offer to give me the food – $169 worth – but so appreciated the way I was treated by them. The groceries just arrived, along with a beautiful bouquet of flowers to cheer me up.

I will never forget their good deed, with renewed faith that kindness trumps hate.
