Trader Joe's To Open In Brooklyn in 2008

Like Fairway, Whole Foods, and Ikea before them Trader Joe's is coming to Brooklyn.

Trader Joe's will set up shop on corner of Court Street and Atlantic Avenue, according to an article in Brooklyn's Courier Life publications.

Chowhounders are already fretting that this is bad news for Sahadi's, while others say there's plenty of room for both stores. Chowhound member Oolah describes describes the first visit to New York's first Trader Joe's on Union Square this way: "I walked along every aisle and saw only frozen foods, boxed foods, saran wrapped foods, plastic container foods and some lousy produce. Walked out without a thing, and haven't been back." Are you still loving TJ's or do you feel like Oolah?
