That rumored Trader Joe’s on Eagle Rd.? Here’s the status

 Could this be the future home of Trader Joe's?
Could this be the future home of Trader Joe’s?

Super cheap supermarket Trader Joe’s currently has just one location to service all lovers of Cookie Butter in the Treasure Valley (and all of Idaho for that matter)   in Downtown Boise. 

But could another store be on the way? 

Maybe.  

A second location has been mentioned as a possibility for the Bridges at Lakemoor development on Eagle Rd. near the new TSheets headquarters in Eagle.

(Editor’s note: Behind “When will we get IKEA?” and “We really need In-N-Out,” this is the most common question I get).

Trader Joe’s spokesperson Kenya Friend-Daniel told BoiseDev “I have no confirmation of a new Trader Joe¹s location being considered for Meridian, Idaho.” She noted to check back for plans in 2019 and beyond.

TJ’s generally works to keep its new stores tightly under wraps until it is ready to announce it. In 2012, when Boise Weekly reported on the new TJ’s store in Downtown, company officials denied it. The store opened about a year later.

A pad site in the general shape and rough size of a Trader Joe’s is plotted on the corner of Eagle Rd. and Colchester St., according to sales documents from Hawkins Co., which owns the development. The pad site is still marked as available. Hawkins is also the development partner for TJ’s Downtown Boise store.

Announced tenants for the Lakemoor development include F45, Luxe Reel Theater and Barre 3.
