Trader Joe’s started in Southern California in 1958 as a convenience store but became the Trader Joe’s it is today, complete with an island theme, in 1967. The store’s founder, yes, Trader Joe, wanted to evoke that faraway market feel, complete with cedar planks on the walls and plastic sea-life decoration. The Trader Joe’s in Bend has murals of Smith Rock and Mirror Pond painted on the walls for a local touch.
