Trader Joe’s to open in downtown Minneapolis
Monrovia, Calif.-based Trader Joe’s said it will "drop anchor" with the first of its supermarkets in downtown Minneapolis on July 20. The Minneapolis StarTribune said the store will be located on the east side of the city, and will be the first grocery outlet in the rapidly changing neighborhood.
The new 10,700-square-foot Trader Joe’s will be the eighth Twin Cities location, the StarTribune pointed out. The store will include a liquor department with a separate entrance and a partially covered parking lot. Trader Joe's has 477 stores in the U.S. in 41 states and the District of Columbia. In 2018 it will open nearly 15 stores. The company is tight-lipped about new stores but said it has no announcements of any additional Minnesota locations
