The Trader Joe’s opening at 93rd Street and Columbus Avenue, originally expected to open this year, is now expected to open in 2018. Exact date “TBD” (to be determined).
The company posted the update on its website, making it look like an exciting new opening announcement when it’s actually a delay announcement.
We have been hearing from nearby residents that progress was slow earlier this year. “I live in that building and every day I peek inside and it looks the same as it did months ago,” one woman wrote in April. In July, however things, picked up, with one tipster writing that there was “a recent large delivery of grocery store style chiller displays.”
