Trader Joe’s, the Monrovia, Calif.-based grocery store chain, announced today plans to open a store in the second half of 2015 in the Franklin Park Commons shopping center, at 5520 N. Division, on Spokane’s North Side.
The store will be the company’s second in Spokane. It opened its first outlet here in late 2011 in the Lincoln Heights Village shopping complex, at 2975 E. 29th, on Spokane’s South Hill.
Trader Joe’s said in a press release that it plans to take 12,000 square feet of floor space at Franklin Park Commons, which will make that store similar in size to the South Hill location.
Company spokeswoman Alison Mochizuki declines to disclose employment figures.
Owned by a large German conglomerate, Trader Joe’s has more than 400 stores in 40 U.S. states. The company has about 20 outlets in Washington state currently. In addition to the new North Side store, the company has disclosed plans to open a new outlet in Shoreline, Wash., next year.
