That would be so incredible! I would love to have them in Biltmore Town Square…but I will travel to any location they choose in this wonderful Foodtopian town!
So there you have it. People are crazy for the Trader Joe’s. Back in October, someone commented here that Trader Joe’s did, in fact, have plans to open a store here, (Biltmore Park, to be specific) but that rumor was knocked down. Here’s the exchange:
when I was in Chapel Hill at Trader Joe’s last spring (had to get that 2-buck Chuck’s) they said we’re getting a TJ here.
I emailed their pr dept about it and received this response:
“We have not yet secured a site in Asheville, so I don’t have any update for you at this time. I’d be happy to let you know if and when we move forward with any stores in Asheville! Thanks for inquiring.”
I guess we’ll keep checking in.
