Construction on the much demanded and much maligned Trader Joe's store is moving right along just below the Gateway Mall in Prescott. Here are a couple of views.
The store has been much demanded by people who have shopped at Trader Joe's stores elsewhere and have come to love them. The much maligned part comes from those people who object to the city offering tax advantages to the parent company to lure the store to our area. Most of these people have never darkened the doors of a TJ's, as evidenced by their comments about the high prices in stores that are only supported by the well-off. Nothing could be further from the proof but if those folks choose not to shop at the store it will just make it that much easier for folks like me, who can't wait for the store to open.
We got one of their Fearless Flyer's in the mail the other day and after going through it, SWMBO exclaimed "It just makes you want to go to a store right away." She, and I, are among those anxious shoppers waiting for the store to open.
Sometime in 2012, according to a sign at the site.
