Trader Joe’s Will Hold A Grand Opening Celebration In South Beach On Tuesday, August 27

Trader Joe’s new South Beach store is opening its doors on Tuesday, August 27.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony will take place at 8:55 am, followed by opening to the public at 9 am.

The store will be 11,500 square feet, and a parking garage is also included.

It is only the second store for the company in all of Miami-Dade, although there are multiple locations in Broward and Palm Beach. The company’s first Dade store opened in Pinecrest in 2013.

The South Beach Trader Joe’s store was first announced two and a half years ago, in February 2017.

I thought you were a smart man? You should know why Trader Joe’s is better than Publix!

Every single aspect of Public is mediocre at best. It’s like Floridians have never shopped at any one of the other regional chains that blows Publix out of the water.

And? It tastes better? Tbh I went to the Pinecrest location the other day to see what the fuss was about… didn’t have a better experience than going to any local grocery store. I live in Brickell and Publix sucks. Been going there for over 5 years without realizing how scammed I was. No meat variety and the few normal cuts you can find are overpriced AF for average quality. Since I discovered the Winn Dixie in Coral Gables I only go there. They have three times more variety for half the price, for same or better quality.

and the prices are way lower for organic as a result – no advertising costs and no brands competing for shelf space. get a grip bozo and get out and see something other than Publix in Hialeah

It has good quality products at accessible prices and a wide range of interesting options you don’t find in other stores. The cheese and wine alone is amazing.

They have all the flea market crafts at your fingertips. You dont have to wait for an Etsy delivery.

TJ is great for: cereal, snack foods, dairy products, frozen unique foods, canned goods, spices, vitamins, and wines!!!
Not that good for produce but that’s true but of Miami in general….
And you get bigger sizes for cheaper in most cases.

Please, please, please, bring Trader Joe’s to this side of the bay. We need choices. Publix has gone down the drain. Have you seen their deli, bakery?
