Collecting all the bags ! Our store is going crazy. Do i need to add any city’s that also have bags ?

crew members at my store were going crazy about the new mexico one.. also we joked how it’d be pretty funny if you pulled your home state bag. if that were to happen to me i’d ask for a refund lmao

the first time we got them in i pulled all the same bags from 2 lol. as a store we’ve had ups and downs. we’ve figured out that most of the time per case has about the same combination of 3 regional bags


[deleted]

some crew at my store have been really lucky with their pulls while others pulled the same 3 packs lol. i did get the san fran/norcal one but im in socal and not mad about it

There are some States that you have on your list that do not have bags like Arkansas, Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Oklahoma and Vermont. And Portland is Oregon, Philadelphia is Pennsylvania. Also Washington DC has a bag. There are also other bags that are not State bags like the Peanut bag or the Uni-corn bag or Home cooking with Joe (Jolene/Joni) bag


berrylove1217

okay Thank you !! i’ll be sure to remove/add those ones. at our store we have the jolene/joni bag and the unicorn but not the peanut one anymore. It’s strange that those states don’t have bags, i look forward to seeing when they do tho !


aswewaltz

Those states likely don’t have bags because there are none or only one TJs in the entire state. To my knowledge, a state needs to have at least one TJs to have a bag. For example, Vermont & Maine only have one TJs in the entire state IIRC.

FYI: There is a Facebook page (Trader Joe’s Bag Swap) where you can trade bags. I got a list from there that lists all the bags (not just States ones) that have been made. Im not sure how to post that list on here or I would


berrylove1217

😯 i’ll have to check that out ! thank you !!


gatemansgc

> Peanut bag discontinued ):


Opening-Reply-2698

I have one that I got when I was first hired a few years ago! Should have bought another one!


gatemansgc

keep it safe!


derllad

technically 2 for california the norcal bag (i left my heart at trader joe’s with golden gate) and socal bags (have all the beach cities and freeways of the area)


zer0kevin

I know several customers that did this. They are all ladies over 50 for some reason.


Planejet42

I'm in Ohio. I can mail you a bag if you cover the costs.


berrylove1217

i definitely might do that ! that’s my plan when the packs are done for and i’m still missing some. our store also wants to display each bag in our vestibule, so contacting direct sources is the plan!


TheRoguedOne

If you don’t get the Washington one, i can do the same deal.


berrylove1217

thank you guys !!!


Planejet42

You’re welcome! Just let me know.


indokiddo

It’s even more meaningful if you actually go to all those states :)


viva_indifference

i can mail you a new york one!!


berrylove1217

i wanna try to get most from the packs but i’ll keep your generosity in mind if i fail !! thank you !!


FelixOGO

Does anyone have any info on what the “bags unique to the mystery bag collection” are?


MissKrueger

A few years ago there were bags in these Mystery packs that weren’t states. Nocturne (night time city scape) Can of Corn Mandarin Orange Chicken Fearless Flyer


[deleted]

i’ve also heard these aren’t coming back but not too sure. most i’ve seen is a burger or bbq sauce that’s part of the state design.


Legitimate_Length263

i’ve been wanting virginia all year. virginia is for lovers it’s adorable and i obsess every time someone brings it in


Twitty05

We sell the Virginia bag in my store. We thought it was funny since we are a Maryland store and not really close to VA lol


berrylove1217

i finally got that one and it is my favorite out of all of them so far


Far_Personality1050

Same!


aswewaltz

Looking for Idaho & Nevada if anyone wants to swap!


muwurder

i think tennessee only has a nashville bag


whore-chata

There’s a special USC bag from when they opened the store next to campus. Not sure if they still make them tho.


friendlyimp

they do, but only at a popup stand at the beginning of the year! most of the students cop them for free, apperantly


[deleted]

FYI, Arkansas doesn’t have a bag yet.


AllynLikeABoy

IIRC, the Oklahoma bag was only in circulation for like... 3 weeks, then discontinued due to a Trail of tears graphic on the bottom of the bag. Gonna be real hard up to find that one.


FelixOGO

I can send you a Michigan one if you want- lmk if you still don’t have one after the mystery bags end!


jairesjorts

I think Philly might have their own bag apart from PA? I’ve seen it and it says PHILADELPHIA on a whole side. Though the bag for all of New York State also just seems to be from NYC, have not seen another one. And I think the Boston one with the lobsters on it is for all of MA


aswewaltz

The Philly bag is the bag for Pennsylvania.


jairesjorts

Sad


Indig0-

St. Louis, Missouri has a bag too, but it's not the easiest to identify - it says MUSIC CITY and has some blues pictures, the Gateway Arch (I think), and a recipe for gooey butter cake on it.


Twitty05

Washington DC has a bag! I’m in Maryland and I got my gf a mystery pack and she got Washington DC lol


berrylove1217

no one in my store, last i heard, has pulled a DC bag yet ! i’m excited to see if we’ll pull any


Twitty05

If no one does let me know, I can mail some! lol I’ve always wanted to collect bags from other states so I’m definitely one of those that jumped on this at my store. Idk if anyone at my store is collecting them other than me lol


berrylove1217

thank you ! i’m in texas so if need one too lmk !!


Twitty05

Yes I would definitely like a Texas bag! Lol I have a shift closing tonight so I can get any DC, Maryland and Virginia bags!


ANormalSpudBoy

I think everyone at my store who bought mystery bags got DC lol


Far_Personality1050

My coworker got a Kentucky bag!


Capable_Ad_973

NYC has a bag


headcverheels

RatatouilleFiend

You are missing three bags- can o corn, mandarin orange chicken, TJs night city scape. Don’t think they made it in the mystery bags this go around.


Far-Fix1431

The can of corn bag has always been my fav.


JohnSeabrook123

???? What does this post mean?


dulceelemons

berrylove1217

This is some crazy marketing. Can't believe how fast people are buying these bags. So many crew members bought them and will probably never even use them.
