Trader Joe's grocery store not yet ready to open

Though the building that will house a new Trader Joe's grocery store in Parker has come a long way, it's not yet ready to open its doors. 

“That project is a ways out from receiving a certificate of occupancy,” said town spokesperson Andy Anderson. “There is still work to be done on both the building's exterior and interior.”

A certificate of occupancy is awarded by the town when a building is ready to be used. 

Both the town and Trader Joe's have said there is not yet an expected opening date for the popular California-based grocery store.

The grocery store's beer license was approved by the Town of Parker in a Feb. 18, 2021 meeting. At that time, regional vice president of the company Phil Wofford said the soonest the store would operate was February of this year.

Once open, it will have daily hours from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. with closures on major holidays. The store, which will have about 80 employees, will be located at 18374 Cottonwood Drive, Suite 150, near the Costco Wholesale.

During the week of Feb. 1, the building's interior appeared incomplete with walls not yet finished and construction crews entering the building. 

Trader Joe's is known for its private labeled, uncommon food items such as cookie butter, cauliflower pizza crust and pickle-flavored popcorn. This store location will have beer but not its popular, affordable wine selection sometimes called “Two-Buck Chuck” due to its proximity to a liquor store, Wofford said last year.
