Just saw a pic of Trader Joe's coming soon to Hyde & Calif, SF. Hope someone can report back when it's open.

  1. the Cala site? excellent idea, the SOMA TJ isn't all that far, but the Polk street bus doesn't run often enough and few on Nob Hill have a car.

    1. The North Beach TJ's is actually a lot closer to Nob Hill than the 9th and Brannan store, and accesssible via the 47 on Van Ness and the Powell/Mason CC. The real question is whether it will be open all night like Cala was.

        the 47? ugh, would take forever. the Powell/Mason? too crowded even on off hours.

        the 24-7 is the important question.

          Hey, the 47 bus isn't that bad. Not outstanding or anything, but OK for TJs and Safeway. I doubt the Hyde St TJs will be 24/7, the others aren't.

            I doubt it too. besides if you need 750 ml of something at 1:30 AM there are plenty of places to go on Sutter.

      2. Walked by this morning and late afternoon. They are stocking the shelves and finishing up details. I'd guess the opening will be before Thanksgiving and maybe this next week...looks real close.

        1. I talked to one of the managers at Masonic and he said the store was going to have less inventory than others because it will share the space with CVS.

          1. A TJ worker who was sitting outside the new store a few days ago told me November 30.

            1. Saw a hand made sign this morning saying TJs will open on November 29. "Thanks for your enthusiasm" along the bottom.

                One of my fellow Crew Members' husband is helping to launch that store.
                The website says 8 am - 9 pm for "Trading Hours"
                Hmm, if they are sharing the space with CVS, then it might be similar to the Grand Lake store in Oakland who shares with Walgreens.

                Remember, each store has core items but ends up carrying things that sell well in that particular neighborhood. If this is going to become your local store and you don't see your favorites, go up to the Office, ask questions and make a request. That's why the Merchants, Mates and Captain are there, for you the customer.

                ALERT: If you are waiting with baited breath for Holiday Seasonal Candy, don't delay this year.
                Certain favorites are already in short supply/out of stock, so if your local store has the display up and you don't see it, ask the Office if it's still available.
