Trader Joe’s will open its first store in St. Petersburg early 2015, just prior to Valentine’s Day. The store will be located at 2742 Fourth Street North and store hours will be open from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily. Trader Joe’s recently opened a Tampa store and has received a phenomenal response and huge following from customers around the bay area, including customers from St. Petersburg. In fact, on many evenings and during the weekends, the store is jam-packed and traffic and parking just outside of the retailer usually has to be directed because of traffic problems. Now, St. Petersburg patrons will have easier access to a local Trader Joe’s location which is scheduled to open Feb. 13, 2015. Read more at TBBJ. Photo courtesy Eric Snider.
