Trader Joe’s is coming to Sarasota, FL
The Sarasota Herald reported this morning that the popular grocery store chain Trader Joe’s is opening their second Florida store in Sarasota. Trader Joe’s confirmed this week that they will be opening a store at the former Rooms To Go furniture store location at 4101 South Tamiami Trail which is just south of Bee Ridge Road and across the street from the Best Buy and Barnes and Noble shopping plaza. Rooms To Go built and moved to a larger store further south on Tamiami Trail this past year.

Sarasota continues to attract the attention of national retailers and is growing with companies such as Costco, Whole Foods, a new Lowe’s and Kohl’s stores now open in Palmer Ranch, the new high end University Towne Center that is being built at University and I-75, and more new home construction being planned for Palmer Ranch. See my recent article: Palmer Ranch is Growing with Homes, Jobs, and BusinessesHousing prices have adjusted to what they where 10 years ago and the buyers have decided that Sarasota is the place to be in Florida. This is all evidence that Sarasota has passed the bottoming out of the housing recession and is growing again.
