Trader Joe’s announces Denver opening date
DENVER — Fans of Trader Joe’s will be feeling the love this Valentine’s Day as the grocery chain opens three new stores in the Denver area on Feb. 14, 2014.
The California retailer announced the opening date for its stores in Denver at Eighth Avenue and Colorado Boulevard, in Boulder at Twenty Ninth Street, and in Greenwood Village at the Cherry Hills Marketplace.
The stores will each open at 8 a.m. with the Hawaiian-themed chain’s usual lei cutting opening ceremony.
Other Trader Joe’s locations – including one in Fort Collins and one at Seventh Avenue and Logan Street in Denver – will open later next year.
The Colorado Boulevard location is slated to be about 18,000 square feet with a detached liquor store. Under Colorado state law, this means no other Trader Joe’s will be able to sell alcohol.
Trader Joe’s is generally known for its trendy varieties of ethnic and specialty foods, as well as its famous Charles Shaw wine, often called “Two-Buck Chuck.”
