There’s one thing Snoqualmie Valley shoppers can depend on if they shop at the Issaquah Trader’s Joe’s – crowds, in both the store and the parking lot. Maneuvering through the narrow shopping isles is tough, even for the most seasoned, skilled shopper.
Today was no exception. Well, except for the fact that I lucked out and got dead-center, front row parking spot for my heavy-duty shopping trip.
The end of my most recent Trader Joe’s shopping trip, though, was greeted with some good news when the checker informed me that they will soon be opening up a new location in Sammamish at 490 228th Ave NE.
According to both the Sammamish Review and Patch, Trader Joe’s will be taking over Ace Hardware’s current space in the Sammamish Highlands Shopping Center. Ace Hardware’s lease expires in August 2013.
The opening of a Sammamish Trader Joe’s may ease some of the crowding at its Issaquah location. This Snoqualmie Valley shopper can dream, right?
