Trader Joe's & Jacksonville Beach, FL - It's Official!

Real Estate Agent with Berkshire Hathaway Home Services Florida Network Realty BK 3030920

I had blogged about this a month or so ago....before I was REALLY aware it was not yet official. Now, it is offiicial, and I'm (among others) are thrilled.

Why? In this article, it is stated that Trader Joe's may be smaller than Publix on a SF basis, but the bang for the buck factor is HUGE.  You can find fabulous wines for $3-$5  a bottle, and they rock their private label inventory, which is wonderful for creative chefs as well.

This location is just minutes from where I live in South Jacksonville Beach, you can read more here: Read more at

I love Trader Joe's.  Sadly, the closest one to me is an hour away in Centreville VA.

However, whenever I get in that area, Trader Joe's shopping is a MUST.

They have unique and wondrful items that can't be found anywhere else.

We have one near us that opened last year and it's always busy. They have many items that you can't find anywhere else.

They opened one about 2 miles from my house in East Dallas.  Sorry I don't get it.

That is great for your area. i have not been to one but have seen a lot about them in the news recently. We do not have any this far north. There were rumors as 2 large grocery chains pulled out of NH leaving many prime store spaces available that a "Southern" chain would come north. Have a great Tuesday

Hi Carol - I am so jealous. I love Trader Joe's but I doubt we'll ever see one here - Colorado prohibits alcohol sales in grocery stores, which pretty much dooms us.

Hi Carol,  Good for you! I'm not sure Trader Joe's will ever make it to Indina.

I always forget that there is one about twenty minutes from my home.  I need to pop in there more often.

Trader Joe's is awesome!  There are some items I have to get there, because no one else has them.  Meanwhile, we Native Floridians are all excited that Public is coming!  The first one in the Triangle will open in Cary.  That's a 20 minute drive from Raleigh, but I'm sure we will get one of our own soon!

Great news for your community Carol!  Pennsylvania is somewhat conservative, so it may be many years before we find a Trader Joe's in this area.  All I can say is LUCKY you!
