Just checked out the new Trader Joe’s in Minnetonka, located just northwest of 394 and Hopkins Crossroads. The store opened last Fri. (Nov. 6).
Quick first impressions:
1. It’s huge. In fact, my cashier said that it’s supposed to be the 2nd biggest of 300 Trader Joe’s nationally.
2. There’s ample parking (makes a big difference if there’s not, like at the St. Louis Park location).
3. It’s going to be a boon for the surrounding (strip) shopping center and residential neighborhoods.
I’ve got a client looking in the area now, who perked up when I mentioned that there was now a Trader Joe’s in the neighborhood.
Three other clients who have bought homes from me nearby are also thrilled.
