In her online petition addressed to Trader Joe’s, Boyd wrote "Our small Bottom Dollar store was recently bought out by Aldi's and we would LOVE to have Trader Joe's step in and be a part of this wonderful growing community!"
The petition calls on Trader Joes to consider Ambridge, "an old steel mill community on the verge of a wonderful resurgence of business and small town living."
"We are centrally located to many of Trader Joe's target markets," Boyd writes.
Some of the signatures have come from supporters outside of the Ambridge area, from Hookstown, Cranberry Township and Beaver to out-of-state Maryland and Colorado.
Boyd hopes to garner at least 300 signatures before presenting the petition to Daniel Bane, CEO of the company.
