Locals are waiting with bated breath for the new Trader Joe’s to open on Columbus Avenue between 92nd and 93rd Street. And some equipment that was recently delivered is making one Trader Joe’s fan particularly excited.
“The check out counters are in!” wrote Allison O’Keefe, who snapped the photo above inside the window.
How did she know those are checkout counters?
“I feel positive because they look like the ones at other Trader Joes – but without the computers installed yet. They have those slots for the paper bags and there are at least 15 installed all along the Columbus Ave side windows.. I am ridiculously excited for this Trader Joes – I feel like it is going to change Columbus Ave totally…”
Last we heard they’re expecting to open in February, but the appearance of checkout counters is a hopeful sign that it could be sooner rather than later.
