Trader Joe's to Open in Allston
A California-based chain of specialty grocery stores is going to be opening its second shop within the Boston city limits--and this one will be located in a new development near the Charles River and Harvard University.
The Boston Business Journal is reporting that Trader Joe's will open in Allston, moving into a space within the Continuum, which will be a residential and retail complex by the corner of Western Avenue and North Harvard Street. Once it opens in 2017, it will join another store in the Back Bay, along with others in Cambridge (2), Brookline, Acton, Arlington, Burlington, Foxborough, Framingham, Hanover, Hingham, Needham, Newton, and Peabody--and an upcoming shop at Assembly Square in Somerville.
Trader Joe's first started out in Pasadena in the 1960s and is now headquartered in Monrovia.
The address for the upcoming Trader Joe's in Allston is 219 Western Avenue, Allston, MA, 02134. The website for the chain is at http://www.traderjoes.com/
