Is Trader Joes coming or not?

traderjoeslogo2What is it with Trader Joe’s? It gets more traffic than anything else on my blog – seriously, check out the comments. People are always talking, writing about it on facebook,  and I hear and read about it everywhere. It’s just a grocery store, people! I haven’t been paying too much attention (been too busy shopping at Cosentino’s I guess), but what I have been able to piece together is that they are coming in the next year and a half, or maybe not, and if they come to KCMO, they will be in the Katz Drugstore on Westport and Main, or it will be in the shopping center called the Uptown Shoppes on Broadway next to the Uptown Theater that the owner is working on cleaning up. I assume it will be where that dirty Apple Market was located – big improvement (I heard this from a very reliable anonymous blogging commenter). Or it may be in Johnson County. But officially, a Kansas City location is not in the two-year plan for Trader Joe’s. Looks like Kansas City can continue our obsessive commenting and wooing of the ever-elusive Trader Joe’s Grocery Store. Dang, and I really want some 2-buck-Chuck – sike!
