Confirmed: Trader Joe's Coming to Atlanta
This is great news. In today's print edition of the Atlanta Business Chronicle:
Trader Joe's leases two stores, may open 12: The California-based specialty retailer's first Atlanta locations will be in Midtown and Sandy Springs
For those unfamiliar with Trader Joe's, it's like a smaller, more casual, neighborhood Whole Foods, except their prices are incredibly reasonable, or even slightly outrageous. For instance, they sell wines that have been nicknamed the Two Buck Chuck, because a bottle sells for $1.99 - and these are good table wines!
I've actually had conversations with people, salivating over rumors that Trader Joe's would come to Atlanta. So it's wonderful to find out that it's really happening.
