Trader Joe's Coming to Winston-Salem!

Trader Joe's announced Friday that it is opening a store in the Thruway Shopping Center off Stratford Road in the space that was occupied by Borders.  The announcement comes amid speculation that a Trader Joe's may anchor a new suburban development in Greensboro - speculation surrounded by controversy as local landowners threatened legal action to prevent the development.  The news that Trader Joe's is coming to Winston is welcomed by many; bringing a Trader Joe's to Winston-Salem has been the subject of Facebook campaigns, YouTube videos, and a letter from the author of this blog submitted via their website.
