This circa 1985 photo provided by Esme Gibson shows Joe Coulombe, the founder of the Trader Joe's market chain, at his home in Pasadena, Calif. Coulombe, the man who created Trader Joe's markets with a vision that college-educated but poorly paid young people would buy healthy foods if they could only afford them, has died. Coulombe's family says he died Friday, Feb. 28, 2020 at age 89. He opened the first of his quirky, nautically themed markets in Pasadena, California, in 1967.
