Full disclosure: I have never been to Trader Joe's. But based on what I've heard, it sounds like a pretty magical place. Now Trader Joe's is announcing a second location in Spokane so I'll have no excuse not to check it out.
The approximately 12,000 square foot grocery store will feature food from the everyday to the exotic, including fresh baked bread, comfort foods and organic items. My boss tells me they also have something called cookie butter, which sounds wonderful.
The new location will be at 5520 N. Division Street. In addition to cookie butter and crew members in Hawaiian shirts, residents in the area can also look forward to the Trader Joe's "Fearless Flyer" in their mailboxes, which the store describes as a mix between Consumer Reports and Mad Magazine.
The store is scheduled to open in the second half of 2015.
