Open for business
More than 100 people lined up outside the 9,600-square-foot Trader Joe’s store in Parker – the chain’s eighth Colorado location – prior to its grand opening.
The store’s interior features artwork highlighting local mountain views, the town’s railroad history, iconic buildings of downtown Parker, and the landmark 17 Mile House Farm. Through the company’s long standing Neighborhood Shares Program, the new Trader Joe’s will donate 100% of products that go unsold – but remain fit to enjoy – to a range of local nonprofit organizations.
Store Captain Ty Poe cut the ribbon to mark the opening of the new store, located at 18374 Cottonwood Drive in Parker, and said, “We’re committed to providing the very best experience for every customer, every day – and we’re looking forward to meeting you.”
