Trader Joe’s is a popular grocery chain known for its friendly vibe and great specials and now it’s coming soon to Parker. Residents came one step closer to their own location in late February after Parker’s special licensing authority unanimously approved the grocery store’s beer license.
“You’ll find something unique at a really great price,” Phil Wofford, regional vice president of the company, said at the licensing meeting.
The Parker location will sell non-refrigerated beer but due to zoning laws will not be able to sell its signature affordable wine known colloquially as ‘two buck chuck.’
The new store is planned at 18374 Cottonwood Dr near Costco Wholesale. Wofford estimates it could take anywhere from a year or more for the store to open its doors thanks to pandemic-related construction issues. “Whether it takes longer due to other things with construction, I don’t know,” Wofford said
Parker residents will be able to enjoy the popular grocery store without having to travel to other neighborhoods sooner than later. Believe it or not, major grocery chains can be a buying and selling factor for real estate, especially niche stores like Trader Joe’s.
