Trader Joe’s looking to open new store in Greenwood

Trader Joe’s may soon open a new outpost in Greenwood.

According to a Seattle electrical permit application, Trader Joe’s is making moves to replace the closed Safeway at 8704 Greenwood Ave N. The store would take over a 13,486 square foot ground-floor space in the six-story Hemlock Apartment building.

My Ballard reached out to Trader Joe’s to learn more about the opening, and a representative responded saying they are “actively looking at hundreds of neighborhoods across the country as we hope to open more new neighborhood stores each year.

“While we plan to open more stores in the Seattle area, we do not have a confirmed location in Greenwood. We list all of the stores that are opening soon on our website.”
