Yesterday The Dallas Morning News' Biz Beat Blog broke the news that Trader Joe's had finally announced the anticipated opening date for the Greenville Avenue location. Starting Friday, August 9, you'll be able to buy all the
Two Two-Fifty Buck Chuck you desire, right in East Dallas.
Of course, you may want to skip opening day. Accounts of the melee captured on City of Ate describe absolute madness at the grand opening of the Fort Worth location.
Lauren Daniels braved crowds and reported lines that ran the entire length of aisles, blocking her access to beefless ground beef. Carts overflowed, and wait times passed 30 minutes for some customers despite 12 manned registers.
Anyway, if this sort of thing sounds exciting to you, you should get to the store early. A line started at 5:30 a.m. for the last opening despite a driving drizzle. Or you could wait a day or two, which is about all it should take for this location to go from a ravenous-mob-inducing nightmare to just another neighborhood grocery.
