Trader Joes Opening

The Grocery Store Boom in Asheville continues with the opening of Trader Joe's on Merrimon Avenue Friday morning.
It is a unique, neighborhood grocery store. This morning the crew let News 13's Victoria Dunkle in a little early to check out the food and beverages.
Trader Joe's Store Captain, Collins Carson, says you will see some national brand, but most of the items carry the Trader Joe's label. He says that's because they try to buy direct from suppliers so they can keep prices low.
To say hello to the new neighbors Carson and his team are featuring a special section showcasing local beer. The store will open with a Hawaiian Lei cutting this morning at 8:00 a.m. That keeps in the Trader Joe's nautical theme.
