Trader Joe's Announces Opening of Second Store in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
CENTRAL CITY, PA -The California-based grocer has been expanding across the nation a lot more fervently lately. Recently, Trader Joe’s has reached into North Carolina, with talks of a new store opening up in Kansas as well. Now, Trader Joe’s is opening a new location in Center City, Philadelphia. With this recent development, it will be Trader Joe’s second venue in the City of Brotherly Love.
Local news site The Philadelphia Inquirer first reported Trader Joe's had an interest in the 1324 Arch Street location back in January. Seeing as how busy the first location in downtown is, the welcomed second location, a mere mile away, will be a sigh of relief and a welcome addition for the residents of Philly.
According to The Inquirer, the new 16,000-square-foot location will have an October opening date and join a continuing supermarket boom in Philadelphia. With competitors like Sprouts, MOM’s Organic Market, Giant’s Heirloom Market, and Aldi in the surrounding area, how will Trader Joe’s fare? Keep reading ANUK as we uncover more retail news.
