Anchors Away: A Brand New TJ’s (Interview & Photos) #VIPeek

In the interest of full disclosure, I consider Jon and Natalie Alexis, owners of TJ’s two locations, to be friends of mine. That being said, I’m pretty sure I’d be a big fan of TJ’s even if I’d never met them and realized how awesome they are. In celebration of the opening of the new […]
