Trader Joe's coming to DTD??!!

My TA just informed me that she heard TJ's was coming to Downtown Disney. Can anyone confirm? If this is true, Disney will really have everything!!

Probably referencing the rumor that Trader Sam's (not Trader Joe's) is coming

TJ's Response

I open stores for them..... I can ASSURE YOU, NO STORE IN DOWNTOWN DISNEY OR THE VILLAGES. You will be enjoying one in Winter Park. I would assume that it will be a larger store and very awesome!! Until then, try and enjoy the 3 locations that are presently in the state, with many more to come!!

Thank you for setting the record straight! We have 3 Trader Joe stores here in Charlotte, NC, and I am a very loyal customer! In fact, I will be making a Trader Joe's run this week to stock up on essentials for our DW trip, leaving in 7 days!

(You open stores for them?!?! Normal, IL would like to send you a huge basket of mini-muffins if you have any input into where those stores are placed...)

I must be one of the only person who is completely underwhelmed with TJs...it's hectic, organic vegetables spoil very quickly (I've tried a few times and it just amazes me each time) and the selection of other products is abysmal.

I couldn't agree more. There is no substitute for a Wegman's and every week when we go shopping I'm reminded as such.
