Pelican Plaza
The Pelican Plaza shopping center will be getting a facelift in order to attract a large anchor store similar to the others moving into Palmer Ranch.

Nothing has ever been said about Trader Joe's coming to Palmer Ranch. there have been some unconfirmed rumours about TJ coming to Sarasota late next year, but as I said, no one really knows. My feeling is that if it's true they will most likely locate in one of Benderson's developments on University Parkway since that will pull from Lakewood Ranch and a whole lot of other communities.

Believe it or not they will not have trouble pulling to wherever they locate.

Oh, I believe it. But it's just my hunch, that's all. Let's see if they actually come or not, I personally don't care one way or another as I have plenty of great places to shop.

Default Acura, BMW, Jaguar, Land Rover, Lexus, Mercedes leads to.........good food Ahh!!

Well my feeling and hunch is that it will be somewhere near Costco. Trader Joe's seems to be following a trend of being located near luxury car dealers. Acura, BMW, Jaguar, Land Rover, Lexus, Mercedes are all in Palmer Ranch on Clark rd (Lakewood Ranch has none of that luxury). There's a Traders Joe's in Naples near these dealers. Therefore I assume TJ's will sooner or later be here. Good Educated hunch, no? Go figure, what does car's have to do with food??

Haha - we all have our hunches, but we'll see. TJ also likes to locate near Whole Foods, which is smack downtown Sarasota. There is a LOT of new shopping up on University - and a lot of stores that TJ likes to locate near, which is why I thought that might be where they go. Too bad they don't like to advertise their intentions. At this point we don't even know for sure they are coming here.

The link between TJ and car dealers is in the imagination of the writer. The only two TJs I have been to were nowhere near car dealers. Like any good retailer, they locate where access is good, there is plenty of parking and where costs per square foot are in line with their budget.

We are talking about the southeast USA (for accuracy), not alaska where maybe the Dealer link doesn't hold true.

But if you look at http://www.traderjoes.com/pdf/locations/southeast.pdf

You'll find Trader Joe's within 10 miles of those Dealers which is what I meant by being near.

I am sorry if you understood a TJ's being next door to a Dealer, must be your imagination.

I know a manager of a TJs in NJ and he said they are supposed to be coming to Sarasota but didn't know where. Why are these things always such a big secret?
