I'll probably get a lot of grief for this, but snobs, rejoice! Trader Joe's is coming to the Grand Rapids area last this year or early next.

All you lovers of “Two Buck Chuck” and cookie butter are probably whetting/wetting yourselves. But it's official. A deal was signed just before Christmas, and now the pieces are in place to have Trader Joe's be open either late this year or early next, according to the Grand Rapids Business Journal.

The space is located across from Centerpointe Mall on 28th Street, the Grand Rapids Business Journal said.
I've been to Trader Joe's in the Chicago area. It's OK. But how is it that different from Horrocks in Battle Creek or in Kentwood? But there are going to be folks lined up a week early ala what happened with Krispy Kreme a decade ago.
