TRADER JOE’S OPENS IN FORMER SCOLARI’S

Trader Joe’s has completed the move from their cramped quarters at 29 South Milpas Street to their palatial pad at 222 North Milpas Street, the former home of Fresh Market and Scolari’s. Even though their new 22,000 square foot location is 50 percent larger than their previous home, many patrons are cheering the spacious parking lot – a first for a South Coast Trader Joe’s. However, parking in the new 129 spot lot couldn’t keep up with the opening day crush. ”Opening day at Trader Joe’s Milpas and guess what… still can’t get a parking spot!” says reader Bradley. “Nice to have it open now though. Welcome to the neighborhood!”

    It is so popular that the parking lot has been full every time I go by. Now I will have to take another street than Montecito St. to go up the hill because the intersection at Milpas & Montecito Streets is very busy with cars and pedestrians. I am sure the pet store is very happy too besides the TJ customers. I really hated to go in the old parking lot by the freeway.
