Trader Joe’s: No Plans to Open in Coral Springs


By: Sharon Aron Baron

Coral Springs residents love Trader Joe’s.  In fact, in a social media campaign last year, hundreds wrote in asking for them to move to this area. After all,  they seem to be opening up all over South Florida, problem is, the closest one is at least 15 miles away.

Lately, there have been rumors that their newest location would be in the newly renovated Royal University Plaza which is home to Brooklyn Water Bagel Total Wine, and Nick’s New Haven Style Pizzeria. This may have been started after the Chini’s Burritos owner told guests that she had lost her lease and heard it was because they needed the area to accommodate a Trader Joe’s.  I wanted to be sure, so I contacted the Continental Real Estate Companies (CREC) who wouldn’t give any information on any leases.

So I contacted Trader Joe’s California offices where spokeswoman Alison Mochizuki said that Coral Springs was not in their two year plan at this time and wouldn’t elaborate on it any further, although I could tell she felt my pain.

Well, at least she was sympathetic to our cause.

So in the meantime, those devoted Trader Joe’s fans will have to travel to Boca Raton, Fort Lauderdale or Davie and continue to write to Trader Joe’s and let them know why Northern Broward County should have one here.  Trader Joe’s Location Request.
