According to a post we just read on New York Magazine's website, Trader Joe's is planning to open a store on 72nd Street and Broadway next year. Could it alleviate some of the unbearable crowding at Fairway?
Oh, how we hope so.
That neighborhood also has Zabar's and Citarella, but the price points of Trader Joe's predict the most competition for Fairway on 74th Street. Of course, TJ's stands alone in its quirky in-house offerings like Anelletti Pasta, Harvest Grains Blend, frozen chocolate croissants, Orange Muscat Champagne Vinegar, and Goat Milk Brie—just a few we've highlighted this year.
We're thrilled to have a Manhattan location closer, to some of us at least, than the Union Square store (which is always picked over when we visit).
