When will Trader Joe's open in Palo Alto?

Original post made by Waiting..., Jordan Middle School, on Jun 18, 2008

What is the hold up and does anyone know when it will open at T & C? I heard that there are complaints about liquor being sold across the street from Paly so we are waiting for the arguing to end.

According to Director of Planning & Community Environment Curtis Williams,
"The project is in the building permit review process. I don't know the
timeframe for when they might pull their permits and begin construction."

I heard they were moving to the Stanford Shopping Center. I don't know whether that is true or not.

There is a large area in T&C that has been cleared facing Embarcadero that I'm told is for Trader Joe's. So maybe they really are going to build there. I suppose one could call the owner of the shopping center to ask. That would be too easy.

Yippee! There is a sign posted at T & C on the Embarcadero side which states that Trader Joe's will open there in Spring 2009.

Waiting, I was there the other day and spoke with a construction supervisor. He said it could be 2009, 0r 2010. Either way, it's coming.
