Trader Joe's is offcially open for business in Texas, with people parking blocks away from the Hulen Street location on opening day Friday.

The long-awaited specialty grocery chain opened stores in Fort Worth and The Woodlands on Friday. The Los Angeles area-based company offers high-end groceries and specialty items at relatively inexpensive prices.

Customers who buy something they don't like are free to return it, no questions asked. Shoppers can also ask employees if they can open something up and try it before purchasing it.

The store at at 2701 S. Hulen St., just south of the Hulen Street bridge, is the first of four that are planned for the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

The next store in North Texas will open Sept. 7 in Plano at 2400 Preston Road.

In the first quarter of 2013, the first Dallas-area Trader Joe's will open at 2001 Greenville Ave. The second Dallas store will open in 2014 at Preston Hollow Village.

Trader Joe's will also open stores in Houston and San Antonio this year. An Austin location will open in 2014.
