Quad Day 2012


This coming Sunday, August 26, is Quad Day! It’s a great opportunity for us to get the word out to students in the C-U area. So far we have done a good job of gathering signatures online, but we’ve heard from reliable TJ’s insiders that we need many more to make Trader Joe’s take notice and give us a store. Please help by gathering more signatures. It does make a difference – every signature counts!

While we are not allowed to gather signatures on the actual Quad, we DO have official permission from the Quad Day organizers to be in the areas around the Quad to solicit signatures. We were specifically told that on the corner of Wright St. and Green St. there will be an abundance of foot traffic throughout the day, which makes it a prime location.

So how badly do you want a Trader Joe’s in our area? Badly enough to help for just one hour? Make it a fun afternoon of spreading the TJ’s love in our community!

Quad Day is this Sunday from 12-4pm – we need volunteers to be there! Download the printable petition here and bring a few pens, a few friends, stay for an hour or as long as you can, and help tell students about the work being done to bring Trader Joe’s to Central Illinois!
