Trader Joe’s has been opening several new stores left and right across the country. Its latest rumored new store is said to be in Long Island, New York. The grocer hasn't formally announced the new location yet, but our crystal ball (and other more obvious signs) are pointing in that direction.
Trader Joe’s is well-known for being tight-lipped about new stores, a practice that builds considerable excitement from residents. Despite the lack of confirmation directly from the retailer, licPost reported that local real-estate brokers have weighed in on the speculation, pointing out that a lease has been signed for a property on 22-43 Jackson Ave.
The new store is rumored to open in late 2020 and is situated in the city's Prime Building, an 11-story, 70-unit mixed-use building currently under construction, the news source reports. The retailer’s primary competition will come from existing neighborhood grocers, Foodcellar and Urban Market. Trader Joe’s has been expanding in New York City since 2006, and now it seems that the retailer is growing outside the city limits.
When will Trader Joe’s confirm the new location? And where else has it set its sights? Deli Market News will continue to report.
