Thanks to a tweet from Claudia Tabini, I was tipped off that the anxiously anticipated Trader Joe's store being built out in Rochester now has a sign up.
I rolled by there today and snapped a pic of that as well as a snap of the Chuck E. Cheese construction underway next to it.
I'm glad a sign is up now. I think a lot of people out there never quite believed me that Trader Joe's was coming to Rochester. They keep asking when it will open and why don't they see any construction work.
Well, I have no answer to the latter, but the former question has the same response I've been given since all of this kicked off.
Both Trader Joe's and Chuck E. Cheese say they will be open before the end of the year. No more detail than that at the moment.
Based purely on conjecture, rumor and my imagination, I'd guess that Trader's will make it open in late Nov. to early Dec. And my guessestimate for Cheese world is that it could kick off a week or two after Trader Joe's.
I guess we'll see, but I am open to any tips anyone might have to narrow that range down a bit. I think many people out there are considering changing dates of weddings, births, funerals, what have you to make sure they are available for the magical day that Trader Joe's and to a lesser extent, Chuck E. Cheese, open their doors for the first timein the Med City.
