Dear 100 Hour Board,

When will the Trader Joe's in Orem be opening?? All the articles that came out last year said it would be open in "early 2018", but I can't find any updated information. I can't wait for it to be here!! I'm sick of driving up to Cottonwood Heights for all the TJ's goods.

Dear Orange,

Last month it was reported that "'[Trader Joe's] is moving along and it’s there and happening.' However, the corporation can’t announce any specific dates at this time." (source) So unfortunately it looks like you'll be stuck driving up to Cottonwood Heights for the next few months.

Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,

Have any of you had an appointment at the BYU Student Health Center? How much did you have to pay for it? I just got charged over 100 dollars, and I feel like that is a lot for to pay for one visit, especially since I have good insurance (thanks dad). It does have a note that says to give insurance 60 days to process the claim before paying. Should I expect my charge to go down in the next 60 days?

Dear Robbed Hood,

It depends on what you go for. I've gone to the Student Health Center a fair amount in my time here, and some of my visits have been free, some of them have been like $25, and some of them have been more in the ballpark of $100 (and that's all on the exact same insurance). From what I've been able to discern, the price of a visit mostly just depends on how many resources they use—my most expensive visit was when I got some blood work done because I thought I was sick, because they needed to have a doctor talk to me, and then a nurse had to draw my blood, and then the lab had to run tests on it, and overall it used a lot of resources.
