Trader Joe’s is planning to open its second Upper West Side store at 670 Columbus Avenue on 93rd Street later this year, the company confirmed in a post on its website Thursday.
“Our Crew is working hard so we can open our doors in late 2017. We’ll continue to post new details about the store and its opening here, so please check back for updates.”
The company’s other local store is on 72nd and Broadway.
Although the lease-signing had previously been reported, we’d been hearing some anxiety that maybe the store wouldn’t really open. The company is notoriously close-lipped about its openings.
Construction of the new store has not been without its headaches.
(West Side Rag first reported the possible opening way back in 2014.)
