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.

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