Brian Paschal, TYPro's executive director, tells KRMG that its part of their 'Bring it to Tulsa' plan. Paschal says, "It's our hope to, down the road, do it with other retailers as well and come up with creative ways of showing that there is interest and passion and enthusiasm in Tulsa."
Paschal says the process is simple. You place an order on TYPro's web site, pay for it then A TYPros crew will make the drive to Kansas City to purchase everything.
On February 16th between 4-8pm, TYPros will create a pop up store in Downtown Tulsa at 11 E Brady St for you to pick up your deliveries.
TYPros isn't alone. There's also a 'Petition to Bring Trader Joes to Tulsa' Facebook group with more than 3,100 likes.
KRMG spoke with several Trader Joe's fans. John Wolfkill says, "Trader Joe's just has a smorgasbord of great products at incredibly reasonable prices."
Dr. Justin Snyder says, "The reason I like them, back when I lived in Los Angeles, they had products that aren't exactly mainstream."
KRMG called Trader Joe's corporate office. A spokesperson says the company is honored to be wanted but wooing doesn't influence their expansion plans.
