New Trader Joe's Opening Friday in Sacramento

Ann Vuletich | Nov 16, 200311:39 PM     1

I am so excited. The Saturday paper reported in the business section (Gene Shallitt, I think) that Trader Joe's on Folsom Blvd. (around 51st) will open Friday morning. I drive by the site twice a day to and from work and have been impressed by the quick pace of the build up. When I was at the Fulton Blvd. store on Saturday, I asked the checker if the paper's report was true, and he said to me in all seriousness that the neighbors didn't want the store to open and so it wasn't going to. For a stunned moment I actually believed him, as that is what happened about 2 years ago to the location nearer to my home. Of course, they never actually started to build the store due to protests and lawsuits from the neighbors.

Anyway, it does appear that the store will open this Friday and that makes me one very happy woman!
