Austin's first Trader Joe's grocery store will be opening in Rollingwood at the Mira Vista shopping center located at 2785 Bee Caves road. The speciality grocer has submitted a building permit application to the city of Rollingwood saying it plans to build out a 15,113 square-foot storefront in the shopping center.
Construction on the storefront is expected to start within a month. Building officials say it will take about 6 to 10 weeks for Trader Joe's to remodel the space.
Trader Joe's also has plans to build a store at the Seaholm Power Plant development in downtown Austin. The store is scheduled to open in 2014, however, the slow progress of the Seaholm project may push the opening date back.
