Trader Joe's goes after Pirate Joe's for reselling products
Trader Joe's in West Hartford, Connecticut.
Trader Joe's is suing a small business owner for reselling its products in Canada. The popular grocer doesn't operate in Canada, which is a business opportunity for Mike Hallatt, who runs a Vancouver shop called Pirate Joe's. Hallatt says he's spent hundreds of thousands of dollars shopping at Trader Joe's in America. He then marks up their products and resells them. Trader Joe's wants that to stop.
