Columbia’s Trader Joe’s Location Confirmed


Construction has started at what will be a much anticipated Trader Joe’s in Forest Acres.

The quirky grocery store chain has been looking at sites in the Columbia area for years, and finally confirmed Friday that it will set up shop in the former Columbia Athletic Club on Forest Drive. The news set social media outlets ablaze with folks who were happy to see the retailer land here.

“wine by the case and grippos (potato chips). who’s ex(c)ited? #thisgirl,” one Twitter user wrote.

The store’s opening will give the area near downtown Columbia – from Rosewood to Forest Acres a cluster of similarly branded grocery stores with Whole Foods, changing the face of the area’s grocery market.
