New Trader Joe's is Open

N Tocus | Oct 6, 2003 04:26 PM

The new Trader Joe's opened on October 3 at 1840 N Clybourn---at Wisconsin (west side of Clybourn, just above Willow), 2nd floor (pedestrian entrance from Clybourn via elevator, parking on 2nd level right outside store with car entrance in back). Phone is 312-274-9733. Hours 9 AM-10 PM daily. These are my impressions only---I didn't measure anything or take notes---but it seemed to me as if there is less space for shelf groceries and more space for wine than at Lincoln & Grace. There seemed to be not as big a selection of dry grocery items. But the wine, produce, deli, and dairy sections are great, there's a small selection of fresh meat and chicken, the frozen meat and seafood are gorgeous (I came home to reorganize my freezer so I can go back for lamb chops, crabcakes, and fish fillets at prices half of Treasure Island's). And there is the same wonderful huge line of frozen foods. And the same lovely people.
