Trader Joe's Grand Opening in Olympia

By
Real Estate Agent with Riley Jackson Real Estate Inc.

This is my 4th blog post about Trader Joe's. It started years back with activating people to petition Trader Joe's to open a store in Olympia, through the confirmation of a planned store, to the progress, and finally the grand opening. I really should stop writing about Trader Joe's, as people who google the store inadvertently come across my blogs and call me for information about opening times and the store phone number.

 

Being a big Trader Joe's fan, I couldn't miss the grand opening of the store today. I thought arriving 45 minutes before the doors were supposed to open, I would be one of the first shoppers, but apparently there are a whole lot of people more dedicated than I. Shoppers waiting in line were entertained with a live band, playing island music.

After the store finally opened its doors, shoppers clogged the aisles and all the shopping carts were quickly gone. I planned to just get a few of my favorite things and be on my merry way, but how can one rush through a store that's so nicely decorated with large murals of Olympia's beautiful sights and its shelves loaded with its popular goods. 

 

The cheerful mood and colorful shirts of the store's crew took away from the long check-out lines and crowds. I'll wait a few days before I come back for more shopping and hope the crowds will have subsided by then. Olympia now has one attraction more and I hope the Trader Joe's store remains a big success.

Sandy  - I would love to have a Trader Joe here in Jacksonville, Florida. We just got a Whole foods store a few month ago.

Robert, start a petition and use the power of the blog. Maybe the people at Trader Joe's will consider your market.
