Suppose I want to say that I called the corporate line of Trader Joe's. Could I say, "I called Trader Joe's's corporate line?"

You could say

I called Trader Joe's corporate line

or

I called the Trader Joe's corporate line

Their own publicity...

@shua,
You'd be talking to Aldi Nord.

@raprap,
Did not Joe was a trader.

Heard he was a believer. Why else would he ask me to help spread the love.

Spread love everywhere you go. Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier.

@anonymously99,
Aldi Nord owns Trader Joes.

I don't want to get involved in fairy tales.

Their wine is kick-ass tasty and dirt cheap.

The German Aldi chain (owner of Trader Joe's) and their competitor Lidl are taking bigger and bigger shares of the European grocery market, in Britain and elsewhere, by offering good quality at low prices. I have found the Lidl Scotch whisky range the equal of any other supermarket brand.

Wow. We don't have supermarket branded whiskey here in NYC. Europeans are so cosmopolitan AKA lucky so and so's.http://i.imdb.com/Photos/CMSIcons/emoticons/angry/angry2.gif

Logically you are right, but it is not necessary to double up on the 's in this unusual case.
It looks weird. I'd avoid it.

Yes, of course. The British own-label supermarket booze market is intensely competitive. The customers won't buy crap products. Lidl do a single malt which they call "Ben Bracken" for just under 20 UK pounds, which has won prizes and medals, it compares with distillery-branded whiskies retailing for around 30 UK pounds, as a Scotch whisky offering it comfortably exceeds stuff like Johnny Walker Black Label. It is said to be from the Speyside Lamnavulin distillery which is a pretty good name. It has a sort of iodine flavour, a bit peaty as well, definitely a high class product. Marks and Spencer have the Kenmore brand which is a blend from Burn Stewart Distillers, which is way better than e.g. Teacher's or Haig and cheaper too.

In 2012 Lidl bought up a batch of 33 year old single malt and put it on sale at 40 UK pounds a bottle, claiming it was as good as stuff costing 100 pounds a bottle. Whisky reviewers agreed and said it was a 'superstar whisky'. I believe they sold out in 18 hours.

@contrex,
Too bad as a bourbon drinker, I prefer Irish scotch.

Where I find myself there are two Aldis nearby and I find it more than competitive with much larger supermarkets. I have gotten used to the Aldi business plan, the limited choice in individual products--but right now they have real Maple Syrup and their ice cream (Belmont) is outstanding and $2.70 a half gallon. I've never been to a Trader Joes.

Question? Do Aldi's and Trader Joe elsewhere have the coin (Quarter) lock on the shopping carts?

This is one of the best ideas going--Aldi shopping carts are always returned to the cart corral instead of being abandoned in the parking lot.

@neologist,
It's three here, but still good old Two Buck Chuck. Nothing's changed but the price.
