A big part of the work I do to get this page together every week is investigating rumors of new businesses that may or may not be opening in the area. But there is one rumor that I cannot disprove and it has heated up quite a bit lately. That rumor is of a Trader Joe's grocery store opening in Coeur d' Alene, more specifically in the space that was to be a Barnes & Noble on Riverstone's Main St. .
All I know right now is that I don't know one way or the other because Trader Joe's is one of the harder companies to figure out future plans for. However one thing Trader Joe's does respond too is social media, hence the reasoning behind a local Facebook group called Bring Trader Joe's to Coeur d' Alene ( http://www.facebook.com/groups/41753073217/ ) . Some on the group do mention having been told Coeur d' Alene may get a store soon but there has been nothing official as of yet.
Trader Joe's is a privately held grocery store chain based in Monrovia, California with a little over 360 stores. The stores specialize in discounted and healthy groceries including a selection of wine and beer. Trader Joe's has operated a store in the Lincoln Heights Shopping Center in Spokane since last year.
