A new Trader Joe’s location opens its doors on the Upper East Side.
Located on East 59th Street & First Ave., this is the first location on the Upper East Side. It is also the ninth Trader Joe’s location in Manhattan and the twelfth in New York City.
The store officially opens on Thursday, December 2 at 8 after a cutting ceremony. Store Captain Brian Lamothe will be on site with Trader Joe’s staff to welcome customers to the store.
The 20,000-square-foot store is housed in the Bridgemarket building. The shop has original vaulted and tiled ceilings, designed by Spanish engineer and builder Rafael Guastavino, as well as new murals that pay homage to other landmarks in the area.
About 99% of the staff at this new Trader Joe’s location are locals in New York City, and applications are still accepted online at traderjoes.com/careers. In addition, the store will donate all products that are not sold – but are still able to be enjoyed – to a number of non-profit, community-based organizations, seven days a week, through the company’s long-standing Neighborhood Shares Program.
The store is located at 405 E. 59th St. and will be open daily from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m.
