Trader Joe's: It's On the Map

Prompted by much discussion about whether or not Trader Joe's is serious about opening a store at the corner of Atlantic and Court in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn, we were led by poster Erin Freeley to actually look at the Trader Joe's Web site for confirmation. And there it was.

UPDATE: Brownstoner actually spoke to a representative for Two Trees, who said "the chatter is a lot of hooey," and that the store will eventually open. "The rumor is, well, just a rumor," says the rep. Brownstoner

In another update, the Cobble Hill blog says that Trader Joe's revealed their projected opening date: "We are aiming for sometime during the second quarter of next year." That's more than a year from now -- more than enough time to start some new rumors! CHB

Looking at the Trader Joe's website!? What a radical idea. Why didn't I think of that?

Thanks for the info.

In all fairness, I actually checked the TJ's website about a week ago, and the Brooklyn location wasn't yet listed here under "Coming Soon". Must be a very recent update.

I hear that the Busy Chef on Court Street is not happening.

No way! Why?

9:59, it's listed now. Either TJ's came to some sort of final decision last week (oh what the hell let's open another store), or the web site people just didn't get on it till now.
