Trader Joe’s plans to open a second location in Nashville, reports Nashville Business Journal.

The company has filed for an alcohol permit from Metro’s Beer Permit Board to lease space at 90 White Bridge Pike in the Lion’s Head Village shopping center in West Nashville, adds Business Journal. Last year, plans were scrapped for the space to be a Fresh Market.

A Trader Joe’s spokesperson told the Business Journal that the company is in the initial stages of opening this new location, so no more news is available at the moment.

You can also find Trader Joe’s in Green Hills at 3909 Hillsboro Pike.

About Trader Joe’s
In 1958, Trader Joe’s began as a small chain of convenience stores by the name of Pronto Markets. In ‘67, the founder, the original Trader Joe, changed the name and the business plan. The stores became bigger, the walls were decked with cedar planks and the crew donned Hawaiin shirts. Most importantly, they started packaging innovative, hard-to-find, great-tasting foods under the “Trader Joe’s” name. That cut costs and saved consumers money. The first Trader Joe’s opened in 1967 in Pasadena, California. Now, Trader Joe’s has grown to become a national chain of 484 (and counting) neighborhood grocery stores, employing more than 45,000 Crew Members. Trader Joe’s buys directly from suppliers whenever possible, bargains to get the best price, so their customers can get the best price. Learn more about Trader Joe’s here.


  1. Please Please Please Please be close to Spring Hill or Franklin (you will have a LOT of happy moms if you do)!!!!!!!

  2. So disappointed in this second location choice for those of us living in Franklin/Spring Hill. Cool Springs would’ve been a much better and wiser choice! Just sayin’ …

  3. For YEARS I have been petitoning TJ’s corporate offices for a Williamson County locating and they REFUSE! This makes absolutely no sense to me…

  4. Would love a suburban location perhaps Mt Juliet or Hendersonville. FYI all of TJ Chicago locations are in Suburbs.

  5. I agree with the sentiments here. TJ opting to have TWO locations in West Nashville, what gives? We’ll never understand what criteria TJ corporate uses to determine their new locations. Us folks need to keep reaching out to them to indicate constant demand for our towns.
