Trader Joes comes to Wilmington

My friend was in Trader Joes in Chapel Hill 2 days ago and a manager told her that one is coming - not sure where or when - to WILMINGTON!!!!! I have prayed for this news since my arrival in 2001. Who needs a $$$$$$$ Fresh Market (which supposedly drove my beloved Artisan out of biz) when there is a Trader Joes in the area?! I don't care if they set it up in Southport or Oak Island....I will drive the distance.

  1. That would be great if its true,But to be sure we would have heard about it by now.

    1. I have heard, also, from a couple of different sources that they are coming to Asheville in their next wave of expansion, too. Hopefully it's true!
