Not everyone has access to internet, so there are many people in our community who have not heard of our movement or are unable to sign online. To solve this problem, we have created a petition form that you can print from home. Take it with you to work or school, post it at your garage sale, take it around your neighborhood, or bring it when you pick up the kids from summer camp… tell people why you love Trader Joe’s and ask them to sign and join our effort to show Trader Joe’s how much we want a store in Central Illinois!
Some public places, like the Farmer’s Market in Urbana, require permission before you may gather signatures there. And keep in mind that not everyone will be interested in signing the petition and some may actually be against it. Try and keep it friendly and fun, and remember that we want to represent Trader Joe’s in a positive way! You don’t have to engage in any conversations with people who don’t want to sign. You can simply say “thank you” and move on to the next person. Most people you meet will be very supportive and excited to be a part of this movement.
We need everyone to work together get the number of signers on our petition higher – we must impress Trader Joe’s with our numbers, showing them our determination to bring a store to Central Illinois. Please print the form below and start collecting more signatures!
When you have completed gathering signatures, email TJs4CU@yahoo.com for our mailing address.
