Trader Joe’s Opens Its Heart to Brooklyn, Finally


It may be apocalyptic out there right now, but we have absolutely no doubt that the clouds will part over Atlantic Avenue and Court Street at any moment, allowing sweet, golden sunshine to shine down upon today’s grand opening of Trader Joe’s. Reminder: The first 100 people in line get prizes (which means that if you’re reading this, you’re probably too late already), but everyone can enjoy Marty Markowitz shimmying to the Caribbean band that will be playing. And with eighteen registers for a speedier exit, you hopefully won’t have to watch said shimmying for any longer than you’re comfortable with. [Brooklyn Paper]
