More on Trader Joe's
From "Trader Joe's leases 2 stores, may open 12" (Lisa R. Schoolcraft, Atlanta Business Chronicle, 2/24/06 print ed.):
Trader Joe's Co. Inc., where shoppers can find such items as hormone-free chicken or blue cheese-stuffed olives, has signed on for 12,000-square-foot stores at Midtown Promenade shopping center, 931 Monroe Drive, and Sandy Springs Plaza, 6299 Roswell Road, according to several people close to the lease negotiations.
The California-based company also is negotiating leases on two other stores, in Buckhead and East Cobb, and may consider a total of 10 to 12 stores in metro Atlanta, those sources said.
Trader Joe's spokeswoman Alison Mochizuki declined to confirm the leases, but said the company will enter the market by year end.
