According to a story on the front page of today's Dallas Morning News, Trader Joe's is coming to our neighborhood! We have been hearing rumors about this for several months now, but now the DMN front page story seems to make it a little more real.

"Trader Joe’s, the hip California grocer, has picked two more Texas locations: Lower Greenville Avenue in Dallas and Preston and Park in Plano.

The Dallas store will be built on the vacant lot where the Arcadia Theater stood before it burned in 2006. That store, at 2001 Greenville, will open in the fourth quarter of 2012 and becomes part of the city’s efforts to rejuvenate Lower Greenville. It will be on one of the blocks where the city just widened sidewalks and added bike racks, park benches, decorative streetlights and trees."

This story has also been on NBC 5.

And what about the Food Trailer Court that we had been promised for that spot? According to this article, it is still a go... Maybe.
