Trader Joe’s Opens Seventh Connecticut Store in Stamford
Stamford’s High Ridge Center is now home to Trader Joe’s’ newest Connecticut location at the former Borders Books. A customer-driven campaign to bring the store to Stamford via a Facebook page titled “Bring Trader Joe’s to Borders’ Location in Stamford” gathered support for the store since 2012 with nearly 450 “likes.” This is the chain’s seventh Connecticut store.
Similar to its 374 counterparts across the country, the Stamford Trader Joe’s features art personalized to the city, including images of the Old Town Hall and the Ferguson Library on the walls. “We don’t take ourselves seriously, we wear Hawaiian shirts, we like to have a good time at work and interact with customers,” Michael Thill, store manager or “captain” of the new Stamford store said. “We’re a unique neighborhood grocery store that celebrates good food.”
Trader Joe’s in Stamford is located at 1041 High Ridge Rd, Stamford, CT. For more information, call 203-321-8440.
