The East Village now has a Trader Joe’s

Cult-favorite grocery store Trader Joe’s has added its eighth Manhattan location to the East Village. The store is officially open at 436 East 14th Street, near Avenue A — just a little more than two avenues away from the other 14th Street location, the first in New York City. This new location has extra-wide aisles, over 180 wall drawings from local illustrator Peter Arkle, and all the prepared and frozen foods Trader Joe’s is known for.

Openings of this supermarket tend to draw long lines in NYC, with past openings featuring a mariachi band. Other Manhattan locations include Chelsea, the Upper West Side, and Murray Hill.
