Trader Joe's Opens
Shoppers flock to a new grocery store chain in Asheville. Trader Joe's is open for business.
"I can't understand who's working in this town, they're all inside shopping," says Mike Weaver of Asheville.
Now, there are three grocery stores on one stretch of Merrimon Avenue including the recently opened Harris Teeter and Green Life Grocery, which was already a fixture.
Spurring more traffic concerns.
"I find it funny that this is going to a nightmarish strip for a little while," says Tim Boissy of Asheville.
"It looks like a nightmare on Merrimon today," says resident Roberta Greenspan. "I'd be amazed of they're aren't any accidents."
Many made it into the packed parking lot excited to shop.
The store opened its doors at 8 AM and was slammed from the start.
Two Asheville Police officers helped direct traffic. Some parked at Harris Teeter and crossed the street to Trader Joe's.
