Future Trader Joe’s at 90-30 Metropolitan Avenue
Brooklyn isn’t the only borough getting a new outpost of that relatively vegan-friendly West Coast purveyor of loss-leading organic bananas and avocados: Trader Joe’s is also coming to Rego Park, Queens. None of us SuperVegans live in Queens, where the blog per capita rate is far below that of Brooklyn, so TJ’s November ’06 announcement seems to have slipped through the cracks. Seems the grocer has their best spokeswoman, Alison Mochizuki, on the case, too: though first slated to open in March, the store is now tentatively set to open for business in late September. When asked what the delay was, Mochizuki replied, “No reason.”
That’s almost enough to inspire me to pursue a career in public relations.
