Trader Joe's is Coming to Libertyville

When Libertyville Patch asked readers a week ago what they'd like to see in the old Frank's Nursery location that had already been designated as the home for a new grocery store, there was one name at the top of the wish list: Trader Joe's.

Well, your wish is coming true. Trader Joe's announced Wednesday that it will open a store in Libertyville in the old Frank's Nursery spot, the Daily Herald reported.

A sign at the property indicated that a grocery store would be built in that location.

"The developer is planning a grocery store there, but there has not been any announcement yet," Village Administrator Kevin Bowens told Patch last week.

Many readers last week told Patch that they'd love to see a Trader Joe's in town.

"I'd LOVE a Trader Joe's and think it will do well here in Libertyville," one reader said.

"We are hoping for a Trader Joe's as well—have been for many years," another reader commented.

According to the Daily Herald, groundbreaking on the new store is set for April.

This will be the second Trader Joe's store in Lake County, with one already located in Lake Zurich, the Daily Herald reports.
