Trader Joe's Expands in Multiple States
UNITED STATES - Forget spooky szn, it’s Trader Joe’s season! All October long, the cult retail icon has been hard at work opening new store locations across the country. Trader Beaus in Massachusetts, New Jersey, and Idaho are all celebrating the grand openings, and we here at ANUK are, too.
Last week, on October 17th, Trader Joe’s opened its second store in the Boise area, targeting Meridian, Idaho, as its new home spot in the Gem State, according to Idaho Statesman. The new location occupies 17,000 square feet of the former 60,000-square-foot Rosauers, which is larger than the first Boise store (the first TJ's in Idaho).
Next up on the calendar is Boston, Massachusetts; the new location will open this Friday, October 25th. According to NBC Boston, this marks Trader Joe’s first location in the Seaport neighborhood and its second in the city of Boston.
The retailer is then closing out a whirlwind month with two more stores slated to open in New Jersey, with an additional two on the way. Ocean County welcomed its first Trader Joe’s on October 17th, while Denville will be joining the opening festivities this Friday, October 25th. According to News12 New Jersey, the grocery chain also plans to open more locations in Cherry Hill and Bridgewater, adding to its 13-store-strong network in the Garden State.
With Trader Joe’s moving and shaking the grocery retail market so much this month, what can we expect from November? AndNowUKnow will continue to report on all the latest retail happenings.
