8 bazallion percent markup?

California-based speciality food store Trader Joe's is opening a 15,000 square foot outlet in Union Square, which is becoming quite the food store mecca these days.

"It is known for selling cheap Charles Shaw wine, known as Two-Buck Chuck because it sold for $2 a bottle when it was first offered," reports the Times.

And last night I was paying $9 a GLASS for some pinot noir. Sigh.
