Trader Joe’s Opens at 8 a.m. Friday at 350 Patriot Place: When the ceremonial Lei is cut at 8 a.m. Friday, Trader Joe's will officially be open for business at its Patriot Place location in Foxborough. To help welcome Trader Joe's to the community, "Pat Patriot" and the 2012-13 Patriots cheerleaders will join Trader Joe’s Captain (store manager) David Ford, Regional VP Chris Maguire and the crew for a lei cutting ceremony to welcome new customers – Trader Joe’s style. The festivities will continue throughout the day with live music, free raffles for prizes, food demos and more.
Trader Joe's at Patriot Place is approximately 16,000 square feet – filling the space formerly occupied by Circuit City - and will be the 18th Massachusetts location – the first in the company’s chain that’s fully integrated into an NFL stadium site.
The new location – 350 Patriot Place, adjacent to Gillette Stadium - will be open from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily, is scheduled to offer beer and wine and will have plenty of customer parking spaces. The store will feature a festive décor that mixes traditional Trader Joe’s elements such as cedar covered walls and Hawaiian motifs, combined with a local flair that includes art celebrating the neighborhood and the hometown team, the New England Patriots.
