Trader Joe's to open store in Sammamish


Trader Joe's will open one of its popular neighborhood grocery stores in Sammamish this year. The company has signed a lease for approximately 11,500 square feet at 490 228th Ave. S.E. inside the Sammamish Highlands Shopping Center.

The store will feature a décor that mixes traditional Trader Joe’s elements such as cedar covered walls and Hawaiian motifs, combined with local art that celebrates the neighborhood.

The "Trader" in Trader Joe’s refers to the way the searches the world for products. The store carries an array of domestic and imported foods and beverages including fresh baked artisan breads, Arabica bean coffees, international frozen entrées, 100 percent juices, fresh crop nuts, deli items, and vitamins and supplements, as well as the basics, like milk and eggs.

When it opens, residents will begin seeing a a copy of the Trader Joe’s “Fearless Flyer” in their mailboxes. The Fearless Flyer is a somewhat irreverent description of a timely selection of Trader Joe’s products. It’s been called a cross between Consumer Reports and Mad Magazine. Each edition highlights a selection of Trader Joe’s products that the company buyers believe are worthy of customer interest.
