The Big Guy must listen to my food prayers.
Signs are pointing to “yes” that Trader Joe’s is coming to Louisville.
The quirky grocery chain loved by hipsters and health nuts “intends to apply for licenses to sell beer and liquor at 4600 Shelbyville Road – the Shelbyville Road Plaza in St. Matthews – by June 1,” according to the Courier-Journal. And Business First seems pretty certain about the store’s arrival.
The Powers That Be still aren’t confirming that the store will definitely make a home in Louisville, but this is obviously a step in that direction.
The news made me do a happy dance. But one complaint – can we get a nice store like Trader Joe’s in a different part of the city? Gas is expensive, yet I have to burn a quarter tank just to do some decent shopping in Louisville. /end rant
