Trader Joe's Doubles Down on Nashville

NASHVILLE, TN - Trader Joe’s has plans to grow its presence in Music City. According to the Nashville Business Journal, the popular California retailer has set its sights on a second location in the central Tennessee metropolis and is planing to lease space at the Lion's Head Village shopping center in West Nashville.

Kenya Friend-Daniel, National Director, Public Relations, Trader Joe's“I can tell you we're interested in the location, and therefore we're taking the appropriate steps to bring a store to that area,” National Director, Public Relations, Kenya Friend-Daniel told the Journal.

According to the news source, Friend-Daniel characterized the project as “in the initial stages,” but the company has reportedly already filed for an alcohol permit tied to a retail location at 90 White Bridge Pike, Nashville, TN, 37205.

Trader Joe’s currently has a single location in the Nashville neighborhood of Green Hills, but the new store location could put the retailer in position to capitalize on shoppers fast-growing West Nashville and affluent Belle Meade—where both Kroger and Publix have stores within a mile’s radius.

Nashville’s Metro’s Beer Permit Board has yet to approve Trader Joe’s permit, but one might speculate it’s only a matter of time before Trader Joe’s brings its discount selection, much-vaunted customer service, and distinctive small format to West Nashville.
