The Hawaiian shirts are coming. The Kansas City Star reports that Trader Joe's will open both its area locations on July 15. The specialty grocer has had fans in Kansas City clamoring for it to open since it was announced in early 2009 that the chain was interested in the city.
Trader Joe's will be located at Ward Parkway Center (8600 Ward Parkway) in Kansas City and at the One Nineteen shopping center at 119th Street and Roe in Leawood. The Ward Parkway store will sell beer and wine, including the store's famously inexpensive but drinkable wine, Two Buck Chuck. What's first on your shopping list?
