Goodyear residents want Trader Joe's, city launches campaign

Posted

The residents of Goodyear have spoken, and now the city is following suit.

When you think of Goodyear, what comes to mind? An emerging city that's one of the fastest growing in Maricopa County with companies choosing to locate there, including Amazon, Microsoft, and Nike?

But what’s missing?

According to Goodyear residents, it’s Trader Joe’s! Despite all the big-name companies who’ve come to the city, residents indicated in Goodyear's most recent retail survey that Trader Joe’s is the retailer they want the most.

In fact, some residents have even created social-media pages  pleading for the company to come to Goodyear, a release states.

Now, in an effort to give residents what they’ve been asking for, the city of Goodyear is launching its first-ever “We Want Trader Joe’s” campaign, hoping to generate buzz with residents on social media and on billboards along Interstate 10 in the West Valley. The campaign begins Saturday, Dec. 7 and run through Friday, Dec. 20.

Goodyear Mayor Georgia Lord will read a proclamation at 8:45 a.m. Dec. 13, 2019, naming that day as “We Want Trader Joe’s Day.”

The public is invited to attend as council members and residents sign the city’s T.O.M. (topics on the move) van with marker, as an informal way to petition Trader Joe’s to come to Goodyear. Residents will also have the opportunity to submit an official request on city iPads. Those requests will be sent directly to Trader Joe’s.

What: We Want Trader Joe’s Day!

When: 8:30 a.m. Friday, Dec. 13
