Rumors have been going around Concord that Trader Joe’s, the gourmet food and grocery store, is coming to Loudon Road, in the storefront next to Buffalo Wild Wings.
Sorry, it’s not happening … but it might someday.
There is an urgent care facility going into the front part of the store, according to Wendy Keeler of Fairview Realty, the broker representing the property. The center will be taking up 5,000 square feet. Another 12,000 square feet is available in the other section of the building, which will be reconstructed soon, after the methadone clinic moves over to Hall Street.
Keeler said on June 13 that she had reached out to Trader Joe’s and it would be great if they came to Concord, but she hasn’t been able to get them into the space.
“Maybe I’ll give them another call,” she said.
Trader Joe’s also didn’t return an email about whether or not a store would be opened in Concord any time soon.
The chain features gourmet and organic foods, dry goods, in bulk, and other items, and is very popular, with more than 300 stores nationwide. Trader Joe’s does have locations in Nashua and Newington.
Keeler noted that the new Mexican restaurant on the other side of the shopping center, the El Rodeo Mexican Restaurant, should be opened in another month or so.
