A Trader Joe’s in the Rotunda?

Share the News

When Giant announced it was moving its supermarket out of the historic Rotunda in Hampden, many in the neighborhood bemoaned its imminent departure. Others saw an opportunity, namely to invite the sorta-organic, store-brand-heavy, quickly-expiring-produce-selling (come on, it’s true), aesthetically pleasing, and above all, inexpensive grocery chain Trader Joe’s to open in the soon-to-be-vacant location.

One such supermarket visionary decided to take it all the way and started a facebook page (with 898 likes and counting) that links to an online petition as well as Trader Joe’s’s (that can’t be right) own “location request” webform where Baltimoreans who are sick of driving to Towson can bring their demand to “Joe” himself.

If you decide to send a request to TJ’s, could you throw in something about making their check-out counters a little bigger? I mean, I can’t be the only who thinks that they are crazy small.
