A little over 5 years ago I started this page in the hopes of getting a Trader Joes in Asheville. Today, with my goal realized, I became their first paying customer.
Who's happy to hear that we're also getting a real Whole Foods in 2014?
I think it's time to shut down this page. We all wanted a Trader Joe's in Asheville and now it's coming and all I keep hearing is negative bitching. I truly hope that the complainers stay away, it will make parking easier. But, you know they'll be secretly shopping there too. Trader Joe's came to Asheville and found property that was for sale. THEY didn't kick anyone out. The owners of the property sold it. Besides, when was the last time any of you visited any of those businesses that are being affected? I'm done with my rant. Thanks to those of you for the years of comments and support. See you next year at TJ's.
I heard a rumor this weekend that Trader Joe's has chosen a location in Asheville, off Long Shoals Road at the entrance to Biltmore Park. I'm not sure if this person is reliable but they seemed very sure about this information. Anyone else heard this?
As of 2009, the U.S. Census Bureau estimates Asheville's population was 76,636. As of today we have 4564 people in our Group. That's 16.79% that know about and have joined this Group. Seems that would be enough to get Trader Joe's attention?
