I have written extensively about the Trader Joe’s market chain for NewsBreak. In that spirit, now comes word that three new U.S. locations are targeted to open this year and next.
We will cover this development in a moment. First, per ScrapeHero.com’s national location count: There are 562 Trader Joes stores in the United States as of May 16, 2023. The state with the most number of Trader Joes locations in the US is California, with 193 stores, which is about 34% of all Trader Joes stores in the US.
Let us explore further.
Trader Joe’s, 2023
According to a report from Patch.com, entitled “Trader Joe's Is (Finally) Coming To Forest Hills,” the first new entity is arriving this year.
As excerpted from the report: After a longtime running joke that every closing store in Forest Hills would be occupied by a Trader Joe's, the highly-anticipated grocery store announced its arrival to the neighborhood. "We've consulted our maps and compass and have found a terrific location for a store in Forest Hills," reads a statement from Trader Joe's. "We are proud to be joining the neighborhood."
The new store will be located at 69-65 Yellowstone Blvd.
Per a related report from EatThis.com, “Trader Joe's Is Opening 3 New Stores—Here's Where the Grocery Chain Is Headed Next,” the other upcoming locations are in the state of Florida and Louisiana.
From EatThis.com: Trader Joe's will also be opening a Lakewood Ranch, Fla., location. The store will be located at 8473 Cooper Creek Boulevard in The Shoppes at University Town Center, which is across the street from the Mall at University Town Center. As with the Forest Hills location, Trader Joe's is aiming to open this store sometime in 2023.
This report went on to state: According to NOLA.com, the grocery chain has proposed its first New Orleans location, which would open late next year on Tulane Avenue. While the Feil Organization, which owns the property and is currently leading the project, could not reveal the identity of the "specialty grocer" coming to the area, "a source familiar with the project" confirmed that it is Trader Joe's.
The expansion of the Trader Joe’s grocery chain is a developing story. In the event of pertinent updates to this matter, inclusive of opening progress and any official announcements of milestone dates, I will share them here on NewsBreak.
