FREEHOLD, NJ - Trader Joe’s is continuing its seemingly endless expansion with rumors of new stores throughout the country.

Now, residents of Freehold, New Jersey, have also followed the clues and have found that all signs point to yes for a chance at their very own Trader Joe’s store.

“We are interested in bringing a Trader Joe’s store to Freehold, however, at this time we’re so early in the process that there’s not much information to share, including a timeline,” a spokesperson said to marketing agency NJ Advance Media, reported by nj.com. “I can tell you we would love to bring a store to Freehold and are taking the necessary steps to make it happen."

The retailer is notoriously tight-lipped about plans for new stores, even in communities with residents begging for a store in their region.

There was no specific name on the application submitted to the Planning Board—the name was listed as “ABC Grocer’s.” However, local sleuths noticed that a design document displayed signage in the same style and font as traditional Trader Joe’s stores.
