Trader Joes Coming To Nashua

Heard they were moving into the old DSW space within the next 6 months. Not sure if this means they're closing their Tyngsboro location, & they'll probably be selling the "3 buck Chuck" in Nashua too.

  1. Yes, Tyngsboro will close, and yes, beer and wine will be sold. Good news, isn't it?

      Nice. I just wish it was away from DW Highway...I despise that road. Oh well, I'll continue to suck it up and head down that way.

        Just think how many fewer lights you'll have to go through to get there!

            Keep wondering when Natures Green Grocer will open behind Five Guys on Amherst St.

    2. This is good news! I hate the DW, especially on the weekends, but will have to be on it less tto get there than in its current location. Plus, can go shoe shopping before buying my honey wheat pretzels and 3-buck chuck. Also, I hear that the locations which sell liquor also carry Gl├╝hwein during the holiday season... maybe for next year.

        TJ's Tyngsboro, Massachusetts - If I buy a non-food item (firewood bundle, a candle, a bag of hardwood charcoal), I have to pay Mass sales tax, correct?

        And if Trader Joe's is in New Hampshire, I won't have to pay sales tax on anything from Trader Joe's. Is that correct?

          yes, but in NH you still have to pay tax on any prepared foods.

            I just heard the news...YESSS!!! When?

              Just "sometime in 2012" . No date announced as of yet. I suspect it will depend on getting out of the lease in their current location, whenever that is.

                Drove past there yesterday and it looks like they've started working on it.

                1. re: SuperGrover

                  I asked them a week or so ago, and they said June.

                  1. re: SuperGrover

                    So it's open - but living in MA, I do not know which section Webster Square is - and Mapquest takes an eternity to open on my computer. Can someone tell me where it is relative to the Tyngsboro location? I take it it's north on DWH. How far and which side? Thx.

                      It's in the plaza with Toys R Us...across the street from Luis Luis and McDs. If you hit the light at Barnes N Noble and Old Navy you've gone too far. Oh, and it's on the right coming from the MA line.

                      1. re: greygarious

                        Grey, it's just up the road from the old location, on the opposite side of the street (on the Pheasant Lane Mall side vs the old TJ's / Jordan's side of the street). If you were leaving the old TJ's parking lot, take a left (or if you were driving by the old TJ's on your left side, go straight) it would be about 3 lights down on your right (counting the light at the TJ's entrance). It's in the old DSW location, which is still in the same plaza (David's Bridal Plaza).
                        If you're coming from the other direction, get in the left lane after the lights at Barnes & Noble - it will be the 1st left after that at David's Bridal in that plaza.
                        Hope that my directions helped you, & not confused you. : )

          2. Whenever it opens for you, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE put in a good word to open in Manchester, Vermont! Loads of us have signed a petition through their web site and started a Facebook page. We need them here in a big way! ... I'm so envious of you all in Nashua. ...
