B’Stoner: Trader Joe’s Comin’, Shut Yer Piehole

Responding to last week’s “anonymous” comment on CHB, Brownstoner actually picked up a telephone and talked to TwoTrees. Yes, “Mr. B” (we’re big fans) has the ability to do such things as “fact checking” because THE BLOG IS HIS JOB. Us? We have to wear slacks during the day and work for the man. Here come “the facts”:

Brownstoner: A representative for Two Trees, however, says the chatter is a lot of hooey, and that the store will eventually open. “The rumor is, well, just a rumor,” says the rep. No word, however, on when TJ’s is actually going to set up shop. The natives are getting restless, Joe!

Update: Homer Fink, our boss, has received a response from Trader Joe’s. But before we get to that, let’s just say he’s really pissed at us for not “checking sources”.  Then he went off a tangent about some dudes named Woodstein and Bernward and stuff. Anyhew, here’s what TJs tells Homer:

Thanks for your interest in our Brooklyn store. The rumor posted on is not true. We are coming to Brooklyn on Court Street. At this time, we do not have a solid date for open. We are aiming for sometime during the second quarter of next year. As soon as we have a date, we will post it on our Locations Portion of
