Trader Joe's Opens New Store in New York's East Village
NEW YORK CITY, NY - Trader Joe’s is starting the new year, and new decade, off strong, already having opened its first new store in 2020—today! Back in May, the cult grocery icon announced its plans to introduce its ninth store in Manhattan, which supported its urban expansion both in New York state and across the country.
“We’ve consulted our maps and compass and have found a terrific location for a store in New York (East Village), New York,” read an announcement on Trader Joe’s website, which disclosed that the grand opening of the new store took place today, January 6, 2020.
In addition to its new East Village location, Trader Joe’s is also rumored to be eyeing Long Island as another spot to keep upping its store count. The double whammy of possible New York state store openings further supports the grocery chain’s growth initiatives, which at the end of 2019 helped Trader Joe’s debut new stores in Idaho, Massachusetts, and New Jersey.
Where will Trader Joe’s maps and compass take it next? A first-ever market for the retailer? Or maybe another metropolis already bursting with TJ’s stores? Wherever it goes, AndNowUKnow will be sure to report.
