About That Trader Joe’s Rumor

Not actually coming!

Not actually coming!

Last night, Prince of Petworth posted some hearsay regarding Trader Joe's exploring locations near 14th and U Streets. The official word from the company–it only takes one call to find out!–is that no, they're not exploring a location there; it's "not in their two-year plan" to open more stores in D.C.

Which, of course, doesn't mean they never will. Just that this particular bit of rumor is almost certainly baseless.

    Various members of the Ward One community tried hard a few years back to get them to come to 14th and U area and no dice. One of their arguments was lack of parking, which seemed silly because their Manhattan store doesn't have parking (we called to ask), but TJ was pretty against the idea. I think it's silly they wouldn't open more DC stores, especially in densely packed Ward One, but then again I think it's silly that Wal-Mart is opening SIX stores in the city so clearly I don't know much about opening a store.
