Trader Joe's is finally bringing its first store to southeast Florida. Joe's plans to open a location in the tony Pinecrest neighborhood in 2013 and Miami is all abuzz over the prospect of shopping for trail mix, nectarines, and cheap wine.
The grocer has something of a cult following in the cities it serves. Since opening its first store in 1967 in Pasadena, California the shop, which features an adventurer's club theme complete with cedar walls and Hawaiian shirt-clad employees, has been a favorite among consumers, ranking second in supermarket chains by Consumer Reports.
