Trader Joe’s Midtown Miami Store Is Opening July 1

Trader Joe’s in Midtown Miami is opening on Friday, July 1, the company has announced.

The new store will be located at the ground floor of the Gio Midtown building.

Hiring efforts for the store are still underway, the company said. Trader Joe’s says it prides itself on hiring locally, and has already hired many local crew members for this store.

The interior of the store will feature artwork “representing Midtown as Lemon City.”

The 9,600 square-foot store will be the first Trader Joe’s within City of Miami limits, and the 23rd for the chain in Florida.

Opening hours will be from 8 AM to 9 PM.

We need Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods at Miami Worldcenter so people can just walk down and shop, instead of getting a car. With all the new buildings coming up there, it’s very much needed!

I heard rumors that Eataly might target World Center for the Miami location. It would be awesome to also have a TomeOut Miami there and the one in South Beach should be renamed TimeOut Miami Beach

That would be great. Personally I wish we get a Starbucks Reserve there like the one in the MeatPacking district in NYC😊

I just need an Equinox at Miami Worldcenter. I just moved in, I love my building gym but I’d love to join Equinox and not have to go far for it.

Isn’t there an Equinox over at Brickell already? Not too far from Worldcenter, you’d have to take a mover and that’s all

Miami World Center is not supposed to be like a suburban shopping area with grocery stores near homes where soccer moms can stop by and grab something to cook for dinner.

It’s called a 15-minute neighborhood. Meaning, everything you could need is within a 15-minute walk. It’s a common term in urban planning. And yes, MWC is supposed to be one.

Gee, they put a Publix Supermarket right there on 7th st and 2nd ave but that’s not enough for these lazy idjuts.

Could it be that people want more options than just Publix? This is a free market economy after all. Usually that implies different choices.

Well, those “people” should get together and take their money and build the supermarket they desire if they want it that bad, just like the developers of that Publix did.

Grocery stores should always anchor large scale developments like World Center.

With standard construction starting soon and a new pizza bar coming, this is going to be a packed intersection in midtown.

Going to be a traffic nightmare. Profits over common sense. Also multiple other shops opening soon at the base of the Gio building.

I love midtown but they need to do something about delivery cars in the street with their hazards on. Getting from one side of Midtown Shops to the other takes forever. I’m old school so I know the back road to avoid traffic but now this will be the Trader Joes parking garage entrance. Ugh!

Imagine living and parking at Gio- I am a resident and we are dreading the opening of Trader Joes. Our parking entrance is the same as TJ’s and we know it is going to be a nightmare.

The Best

Concerned Midtown Resident

Going to be an absolute disaster with regards to access. The tiny garage they will be using is not designed to handle 100s of daily customers, not to mention it is also the only vehicle entrance/exit the residents of the 32 story Gio apartments have for their home. The congestion on the back road and surrounding streets will see accidents and road rage incidents without a doubt. They are not prepared.

Very exciting! Hearing my friends talk about the options in TJs would always make me jealous years ago. Now there are many to choose from. Would have appreciated it then but better late than never.

Lemon City wouldn’t be acknowledged and it would all be Little Haiti as if it always existed if they wanted to virtue signally. Still, as people already mentioned, Wynwood would make more sense. I mean whole other neighborhoods separate this area from Lemon City (Design District, Buena Vista, and Shadowlawn).

The hours are bad, it should close at 11pm or even midnight

Agreed. Publix is bad enough as it is closing at 10. I’m from a rural flyover state and our grocery stores are 24 hours. Moving to a city, one would think we would have more options, not less.

Miami is not some small Bible Belt town.. grocery stores in this city take a risk of being robbed the longer they stay open at night.

Have you been to the Bible belt lately? More crime (and teen pregnancy, suicide, drug addiction, etc) there than here.

Look, you said (if that was you) “You think the reason they close at 10 is to prevent robberies?!”

I said “grocery stores in this city take a risk of being robbed the longer they stay open at night.”

There’s a big difference between preventing “robberies” and closing earlier to try to keep from getting robbed.

The irony to your logic being that (and any urban planner will tell you this:) the more things that are open late, the less likely there will be crime during those hours since people will be out and about. Criminal activity thrives in areas where most people have deserted after things close down, when there’s minimal if any potential witnesses.

Pretty sure Trader Joes just closes at that time because it’s a very structured/efficiency-driven org (which helps them maintain the low pricing on a lot of items), and it provides ample time for them to reset the way they need, as well as getting their employees home at a decent hour.

You don’t see a lot of vagrants and malcontents at the Beach, Gables, or Dadeland TJs. Two are even right across from the Metrorail. Sounds like pearl clutching. Let anyone drink the $3.99 wine who can afford it!

FINALLY developers are starting to get with the times and have come to the realization that Miami needs more glass and less stucco buildings. That goes for any small, mid-size building to a skyscraper. It only took them 20 years to realize.

They’ll never build that because they don’t have a Tequesta Indian and u have to have a native Indian of the area to do a casino legally. The last tequesta probably died 3,000 years ago and is under some building in Brickell now

False, a study and thousands of dollars later, telling you all it’s impractical to extend something designed for short distances just so you can buy your kale and cookie butter and not have to pay train fares, when Metrorail or the existing FEC tracks would be more feasible.

Um, the Metromover cars run on electricity, so they’re designed to travel as long as there isn’t a blackout. We don’t get something that would make sense in this city, no, we they’re too busy throwing taxpayer money at goofy shit like a signature bridge with suspension arches that like look like a giant spider is crossing it.
