Trader Joe’s In Kansas City? What?
At last… the wait is over. Trader Joe’s will be in Kansas City in 2011. YEAH! Welcome Trader Joe’s! Why do we care so much about this new opening? Well, because we moved to Tucson from Kansas City, and just LOVE Kansas City and think it is a great town to have a Trader Joe’s store in. Opps… did I say store? I meant to say stores!
Yes, there will be two new stores opening in the Kansas City area. The first in Leawood (119th and Roe) and the other….. Ward Parkway Shopping Mall!
Both locations will be excellent venues for a Trader Joe’s.
My Mother, who lives in Kansas City, was so excited about hearing the news that she emailed me a link to the Kansas City paper. If you want to read the whole article it is here: Trader Joe’s in the Kansas City Paper.
Now, don’t get me wrong, I love the new locations for the Trader Joe’s stores, but it does seem funny to me that they are only going to be 6 miles apart from one another. But maybe that has to do with receiving the goods in an efficient manner.
Whatever the reason, I know that we will be checking the news stores out on our next visit to the Kansas City area. Congratulations Kansas City!
