I actually think I would like that part. I hate when people don't return carts to the cart corrals and just leave them anywhere in the parking lot!

It's a prime location right next to Target, so it won't be empty for long.
I was just over that way. It's moving day for Office Depot and for those who are interested, they're selling their fixtures for next to nothing. I picked up a wire rack which is going to become some sort of plant stand in my yard. The store manager sells a Golf Store is moving in.

They couldn't move the fixtures 500 feet over to the new store?

You know they do a lot of this in Europe. It drove me absolutely batty when we spent the summer there a couple of years ago, I never had change with me to "rent" a cart.

LOL I was wondering the same thing. But I'm happy to help them unload their old racks.

By the way, they have about 15-20 square racks that would make nice plant stands for a deck. I think they were used to hold various letterheads, although they're more square than rectangular. They're a little taller than the typical plant stand but could be really cool looking in the right setting. $5 each, which is a nice deal if you've tried to buy plant stands at a store.

my local tj's in arizona was supermarket sized and offered a fabulous selection...and we payed no sales tax, so it was lovely. with size, tj's gets nothing but better and they need to get better here in va.

Enjoy!
I called Reston TJ, they said there is a bid for the space but no plans yet. Confusing.

Default Not true

According to this article in the Leesburg 2 Day paper:
Trader Joe's Denies Plans For Sterling Store - Leesburg Today : Business

The rumor is false; Trader Joes PR claims there are no current plans to open a Trader Joes in the former Borders location in Sterling.
