business news in context, analysis with attitude

  • The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that Trader Joe’s is decrying rumors that it has plans to move into the Atlanta market.

    "I sure wish we could tell you that we're going to [open in Atlanta] this year," Trader Joe's spokeswoman Audrey Dumper tells the paper. "We certainly think Atlanta is a great market and a great food town with lots of people who enjoy a good value and finding something fun for their meals." But she says that Atlanta residents probably will have to wait a couple of years for Trader Joe’s to come to town.
