South Loop Rejoice!

Logo_static.jpgGet ready South Loop, Trader Joe's is coming to your hood. This Friday (9/9) will mark the opening of TJ's highly anticipated South Loop store, opening on the corner of Roosevelt and Wabash in the former Sam's Wines spot. The specialty "neighborhood" grocery store continues its expansion in Chicago, opening amid an area with blocks of retail vacancies and restaurant closings. Opening at 8am, and complete with 47 free parking spaces, the grocery store will add a welcome variety to the neighborhood.

Trader Joe's South Loop is located at 1147 S. Wabash, and will be open 8am to 9pm seven days a week.

I have a view of the Trader Joe's parking lot and it is a three ring circus. Traffic is backed up to Wabash, spaces are tight if you can find one. Fun to watch, but bad to be stuck in.

The store is north of Roosevelt, the address is 1147 S. Wabash.

I wonder if the staffers at the Jewel (across the street) will welcome them... :-)
