Trader Joe's Deal Dead In Excelsior; Alive In Shoreview

In a mixed bag of news, Trader Joe’s has called off plans for a store in Excelsior after months of speculation that the chain would fill the Main Motors building in the Minneapolis suburb. Sources confirm that the company has decided to no longer pursue that location.

On the other hand, Trader Joe’s will be moving into Shoreview with a new 14,000 square foot store – pending approval of an on-site liquor license.
