Update on Salem Trader Joe's: due to open mid-June 2011
I took the photo below late this afternoon (Jan. 31, 10). With most of the shelves stocked and the carts lined up outside, I wouldn't doubt if TJ's planned a soft opening before their scheduled Feb. 12th Corvallis debut.
Update: Corvallis Trader Joe's scheduled to open Feb. 12, 2010.
In case you missed it, here's a couple news articles from local papers.
This doesn't mean that there will never be a TJ's in Salem.
