The next closest Trader Joe's to those here in the Lansing area is down in Ann Arbor if you're willing to make the trip down there to see what the store will hold for you.

If you didn't know either, there is also a big following to get Trader Joe's into Lansing. There is an entire Facebook group, dedicated to getting Trader Joe's into Lansing, and clearly, the power of the group worked.
