Harlem Is Getting Its First Trader Joe’s


Trader Joe's is finally coming to Harlem in what will be their 13th store in NYC!

The grocery store chain, loved by so many, announced the news last week in a press update about their continued diversity and inclusion efforts since June.

“We are also focusing on neighborhood diversity as an important factor in selecting new store locations,” they wrote. “For example, we recently signed a lease for a new store in the Harlem neighborhood of New York City. The store will be housed in a groundbreaking development at 121 W. 125th St. where we will share occupancy in the building with the new headquarters for the National Urban League, New York’s first Civil Rights Museum, cultural space, and affordable housing.”

They also said they are planning more stores in new and diverse neighborhoods! This will be the first Trader Joe's in this location and will be 28,000 square feet, also housing a new Target store!

It is expected to open in 2023!
