Trader Joe’s – The Announcement!

April 2nd, 2008

It seems it is finally happening!  Trader Joe’s will be opening a location by Thanksgiving this year at the old Wild Oats location in Green Hills!


Trader Joe’s, a grocery chain some Nashvillians have long clamored for, is set to open a Green Hills location by Thanksgiving of this year.

The store will be at 3909 Hillsboro Pike and measure 14,000 square feet, said spokeswoman Alison Mochizuke. That’s in line with the California-based company’s average store size of approximately 10,000- to 15,000-square feet.

The address is the former Wild Oats location.

Maybe they can get the wine issue straight by that time.   I’m thinking this might hurt Whole Foods a little bit, they already have issues with my reusable TJ cooler bags.

A day earlier and I would not have believed it.


Trader Joe’s Not Trading Here

Another email sent to Trader Joe’s corporate today.  Just to update those who need to know, the reply:

We appreciate your suggestions and enthusiasm regarding opening a store in Nashville. We regret to inform you that at this time we have no plans for a store location in this area.

File that under Trader Joe’s – Nashville –  No.
