The Trader Joe’s basement outpost at Essex Crossing will temporarily close next week as part of an overall cleaning effort by corporate.

The closure on April 24 is reportedly an “additional precautionary cleaning and sanitization” measure to prevent the spread of COVID-19. The grocery chain announced the cleaning schedule on Monday.

It’s one of a dozen Trader Joe’s supermarkets around the city undergoing a massive wipe-down.
