Best Grocery Store Return Policies

1. Trader Joe’s tops our short list of grocery stores with the best return policies.

Best Grocery Store Return Policies

What makes it the best of the best is this grocery store chain that specializes in selling hard-to-find, awesome tasting cuisines and items will take back any item. Yes you read it correctly, They truly offer returns on everything they sell. Even if you open an item and take a bite of something and just don’t like the food they will take back the item for a full refund. Now that’s a return policy. Of course you have to use your best judgement, this does not mean you can abuse this great privilege. It just means they would like to satisfy the customer one-hundred percent. This why we believe they have built a loyal brand that brings customers back. So visit Trader Joe’s worry and hassle free.

2. Our next choice for a great grocery return policy is Whole Foods.


Yes some customers believe they are a bit overpriced. Although we now believe with Amazon purchasing them they will be able to lower prices and bring you groceries right to your door step.
Just like Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods customers claim that the store is always willing to take any item back, even if it’s been opened or used.


As the coronavirus COVID-19 affects our communities, Trader Joe’s work as your neighborhood grocery store continues. They are vigilant; heeding all federal, state and local health advisories; and where it makes sense, adjusting efforts to safeguard the health and safety of their Crew Members and customers, as always guided by integrity and focused on doing what is right. To date, these efforts include:

Customers Use of Face Coverings: They require customers wear a face covering that meets the standards of applicable health authorities while shopping in our stores. Unless otherwise directed by local rule or law, this does not apply to young children and those with medical conditions who are not able to wear face coverings.

Personal Protective Equipment for Crew Members: As the situation evolves, we continue to look to the CDC as well as state and local health officials for guidance on best health and safety practices. We provide all Crew Members with gloves, should they choose to use them, and emphasize that they do not replace proper hand hygiene, which is one of the most effective protections from COVID-19. In line with current recommendations from health authorities, we have also provided our Crew Members with face masks and are urging that they use them for their protection and the protection of those around them.

Crew Member Wellness Checks: All of their stores are conducting Crew Member Wellness Checks with all Crew Members prior to the start of each shift. The Wellness Checks screen for potential exposure to COVID-19 and for symptoms consistent with a COVID-19 infection. Wellness Checks are an extra precaution we are taking to reduce the possibility of any Crew Members inadvertently exposing their fellow crew or our customers to illness.

Revising Store Hours for All Trader Joe’s Locations: In addition to reducing store hours and closing all locations at 9:00pm to support our Crew Members in taking care of one another and our customers, we have continued to evaluate our response to support customers who are most vulnerable to COVID-19. Unless otherwise directed by local rule or law, on Wednesdays and Sundays, during the first hour of operation (either 8AM-9AM or 9AM-10AM depending on the store), Trader Joe’s stores prioritize service for our senior customers over the age of 60 and customers with disabilities who may need additional assistance while shopping. To find the hours for your store, please visit our locations page.
