It's official. Delray Beach has got its Trader Joe's.
The funky food store chain confirmed on July 23 that it had signed a lease for a spot in the new Delray Place shopping center at the southeast corner of Federal Highway and Linton Boulevard.
The Trader Joe's there will have about 10,000 square feet of floor space, sell beer and wine, and have employees dressed in bright Hawaiian shirts who refer to themselves as “crew members” and “traders on the culinary high seas.”
The Delray Beach location, scheduled to open in October 2014, will be the fourth new Trader Joe's coming to Florida next year. The California-based company recently announced leases in Boca Raton, Palm Beach Gardens and Winter Park.
