I love seeing the bright lights of a grocery store sign welcoming me from the parking lot, as I head inside to find my weekly essentials. Within weeks of each other, four Trader Joe’s stores will be opening on the East Coast in Maryland, Connecticut, Tennessee, and Virginia.
The stores in Manchester, CT—perched at 1510 Pleasant Valley Road—and Ashburn, VA—settled at 44755 Brimfield Drive—both opened yesterday.
As of today, consumers in North Potomac, MD, are able to get their fresh foods and more at Trader Joe’s. The chain’s newest location in Maryland resides at 10076 Darnestown Road.
A Germantown, TN, Trader Joe’s, located at 2130 Exeter Road, will open its doors in a week from today.
As stores pop up on the East Coast, how will competitors respond? Is there more to this wave of new stores? Deli Market News will continue to keep you updated with the latest industry happenings.
