As I typed this in my mind I heard the scream of hundreds of shoppers so very excited to not travel to the West End to get to Trader Joe’s. Somebody else will need to give us an update on the actual opening as I’ll be avoiding the crowds for a good month or so.
The second Trader Joe’s store in the Richmond region is slated to open on Friday Oct. 9.
The store opens at 8 a.m. on that day, the chain announced Tuesday afternoon.
The California-based retailer is taking over part of the former Martin’s Food Markets grocery store in the Stony Point Shopping Center off Huguenot Road in South Richmond.
Trader Joe’s announced in April that it planned open the second area store in the Stony Point Shopping Center, where it is leasing 12,995 square feet of the former 40,000-square-foot Martin’s store.
Trader Joe’s reached and requested their website so here you go: https://www.loc8nearme.com/virginia/richmond/trader-joes-southside/5968784/
