Trader Joe’s opens at Issaquah Commons

November 20, 2012

By Staff

Trader Joe’s reopened Nov. 14 in a location large enough for the California-based grocer to offer spirits under the state’s revised liquor laws.

The grocer relocated to 975 N.W. Gilman Blvd. from a smaller space at Pickering Place, and renovated 11,000 square feet at the Issaquah Commons for the store.

Trader Joe’s carries domestic and imported foods and beverages, in addition to basics, such as eggs and milk.

The store meets the threshold — 10,000 square feet — to sell liquor, in addition to beer and wine, under state law.

In addition to Hawaiian-inspired touches throughout the store, Trader Joe’s features hand-painted murals depicting local landmarks, such as the Hailstone Feed Store and Issaquah Train Depot, and natural features, such as Poo Poo Point and Lake Sammamish.
