In a sure sign that the neighborhood is changing in flavor and demographics, Echo Park residents are taking to Facebook to demand that Trader Joe’s opens a store here. The goal is to get enough people to “like” this idea, then its ring-master will toss it on over to the suits at Joe’s. The prevailing idea is that it would fit perfectly into the hole left behind by Save-A-Lot, though at this point, the movement is only 56 likers-strong. [Facebook via Eastsider LA]
