FORT WORTH - We are a little less than one month away from Trader Joe's opening in Fort Worth, down the street from a Tom Thumb and not too far from Central Market. Both of those chains have to be thrilled.
Click here for Trader Joe's website. Located at 2711 South Hulen Street in Fort Worth, it is scheduled to open June 15; this will be the third store in the greater FW-d.
The arrival of In and Out Burger last year was more exciting, but a Trader Joe's in F-Dub is regarded as an essential to any city. The Trader Joe's stamp of approval is nice.
What was at one time a quaint little store out of Los Angeles has become a nationwide monster that carries a smaller line of its own products that are enviro-friendly.
Is it worth the hype? No, but nothing is ... save for The Expendables 2.
Some of the food, wines and coffees offered at Trader Joe's are worth a seperate trip, but I can't envision completing a week's worth of grocery shopping here, unless one of my hobbies was burning giant piles of cash.
