Trader Joe's to Open in Somerville's Assembly Square
A California-based chain of specialty grocery stores that has a handful of locations in the Greater Boston area is opening a new one just north of the city.
According to an article in boston.com, Trader Joe's is planning to open a shop at Assembly Square in Somerville, apparently taking over part of the AC Moore space, though the post speculates (based on the address given) that it could also take over part or all of the adjacent Sports Authority store which is closing. One it opens in the third quarter of 2017, it will join others in Boston, Cambridge (2), Brookline, Acton, Arlington, Burlington, Foxborough, Framingham, Hanover, Hingham, Needham, Newton, and Peabody.
Trader Joe's, which first started out in Pasadena and is now based in Monrovia, is known in part for its variety of reasonably-priced private-label items.
The address for the upcoming Trader Joe's at Assembly Square is 133 Middlesex Avenue, Somerville, MA, 02145. The website for the chain can be found at http://www.traderjoes.com/
