Officials: No Trader Joe's in Lindenhurst for Now

The California-based food chain isn't planning a Lindy location in the near future, according to the company.

As of late there’ve been so many residents who seem to welcome the idea of a Trader Joe’s location right here in Lindenhurst.

And many have as such on the in Lindenhurst Patch’s Visions for Vacancies series where we ask residents to share what they’d like to see in some of the around the .

So Patch went to Trader Joe’s headquarters in Monrovia, California, to ask if it was planning a Lindy location in the near future.

This is what they had to say after a few attempts to get some comment:

“Unfortunately at this time we’re not able to confirm a new location in Lindenhurst or the nearby area. The best place to find information in that regard is on the website, but that information would be made available just prior to any store openings. We wouldn’t be able to confirm until [a store location] is in the actual final stages,” Hazel, in Trader Joe’s customer relations, explained in a voicemail message to Patch.

Currently, there are 19 locations listed on the Trader Joe’s website as “coming soon.” However, Lindenhurst isn’t listed there either.

The closest new Trader Joe’s store on that list is in Westbury. It’ll join other Long Island locations in Plainview, Merrick, Lake Grove, Oceanside, Commack and Hewlett.

So it seems, for now at least, there’ll be no Trader Joe’s in Lindenhurst or in the surrounding area.

What is coming to Lindy is German supermarket chain Aldi, which is slated to open early in 2013.

Did anybody really think Trader Joe's would be coming to Lindehurst? Aldi's makes a lot more sense, a store selling to poor people on a cash only basis. It fits in well with the cash checking places, gold buyers and pawn shops. I'm not slighting Lindenhurst, I really like living here, but facts are facts and demographics are demographics.

Here are two articles about the whereabouts of the soon-to-open Aldi location: http://patch.com/A-smsv and http://patch.com/A-sx84. Hope this helps.

Thanks Barbara.

Robert I completely understand your comment. And I love it here too. Wishful thinking I guess. On the other hand, as long as we are opening new businesses and creating more jobs, Its better than looking at all these boarded up stores.

Have you ever been to an Aldi's? They are awesome--and owned by the same company who own Trader Joes.
