Friends of the chanchow have told me that Trader Joe's is coming to NYC. The new TJ's will open in three months near Union Square (142 East 14th Street), with a TJ's wine shop next door.
You may remember that I blogged about TJ's a while back. I will check out the new store next time I'm in NYC. In the meantime, those of you in in the area should go visit and tell me what it's like!
