Buyer Beware: Rash Of Thefts Reported At Atlantic Ave. Trader Joe’s

Trader Joe’s on Atlantic Avenue at the border of Brooklyn Heights and Cobble Hill has reported five thefts over the past several months from unattended shopping carts.

    It certainly isn’t Trader Joes fault that carts are left unattended. A little personal responsibility would be more helpful than surveillance cameras.

    I couldn’t agree more. There have been many thefts of women’s purses at Trader Joe’s. We live in a busy well populated city not a small town. Some people just don’t get it!

    I continue to be amazed at the blind trust people have in others… leave a purse unattended in a shopping cart? This is Brooklyn, for goodness sake!
