Trader Joes Rumour

If TJ's opens at T&C, JJ&F is toast. JJ's has already been screwed over by the developer that wants to develop on/near their current site. This is not a good decision for those that value our northern markets.
I'm a pro-development person, but what I don't understand is why we can't bring in TJ's at Alma, or Edgewood PLaza. We have a surfeit of food markets in this part of town (Whole Foods, JJ&F, Mollie Stone's, Country Sun, and at least 2-3 small neighborhood "in-and-out" type markets, like 7/11). TJ's will just more pressure on them. Why would they go in at T&C, when the Menlo Park TJ's is only 5 short minutes from ther, in Menlo Park.
If this real, it's wrong-headed.

TJs would fill a void at Town Country Village. We need a reasonably priced grocer. Love JJ&F, but I'd also shop at TJs for specialty items. HOpe the rumor is true.

TJs coming to Palo Alto? That's the greatest news I've heard!!
