Trader Joe’s coming to Atlanta

Scoop from local blogger Lady Crumpet:

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!

    Midtown as in the former Harry’s In A Hurry / Market One location (as had been previously mentioned)? Any idea?

    I heard in the former Winn-Dixe spot at Midtown Promenade.

    Please establish a Trader Joe’s in Downtown Atlanta!!!! (Midtown and Buckhead already have plenty of similar stores!)
