Representatives from the Town of Lexington announced Thursday that a Trader Joe's could possibly be coming to the area.
Town officials confirmed that Trader Joe's representatives have shown interest in opening a store in Lexington. The popular health-conscious grocer would be moving in to the former GreenWise building, which closed at the end of August. The building is located at 5336 Sunset Blvd.
Town staff created a petition for residents to sign as a demonstration to Trader Joe's that a location in Lexington would be welcomed and well-received. There were nearly 800 signatures within the first hour of the petition being posted through the town's Facebook page.
The closest Trader Joe's is currently located in Columbia on Forest Drive.
