A woman was afraid her 89-year-old father would run out of food after a snowstorm which left him trapped in his house. She called a number of grocery stores in the area hoping to arrange a delivery to her father’s home, but she came up empty . . . until she called Trader Joe’s. The Trader Joe’s employee told her the store usually doesn’t deliver. But in this case, they were happy to make an exception. As the daughter placed her order, the employee suggested additional items that would fit her father’s restricted diet. Once the order was complete, the employee said the food was on the house, and the free groceries arrived at their destination less than 30 minutes later.
