Date Set for Trader Joe’s Debut on the Lower East Side
The new Essex Crossing outpost – located in the basement of 400 Grand Street – is lucky number seven for the ubiquitous branded grocery store in Manhattan. It’s being lauded as the biggest Trader Joe’s on the eastern seaboard, clocking in at over 30,000 square-feet (bet those aisles are still tight, though).
A ceremonial lei-cutting will take place at 7:55am on opening day (October 19), and the grand opening celebration will continue throughout, with live music, food tastings, giveaways, yada yada yada. (That wasn’t the best part.)
