Trader Joe’s confirms plan to relocate down the road in Springfield

Trader Joe’s is gearing up to relocate from its current site in Springfield.

The grocer plans to relocate from Springfield Plaza on Old Keene Mill Road to another location 3 miles down the street, a company representative told FFXnow.

The grocer will take the place of Whole Foods Market at Old Keene Mill Center (8424 Old Keene Mill Road). Whole Foods is bouncing over to Springfield Plaza, where it has been building out a significantly larger space.

But the move for Trader Joe’s isn’t expected to go into effect for another “year or so,” the staff person told FFXnow.

A public relations manager for Trader Joe’s did not indicate when the store expects to open in the new location.

“We consider many locations. All of the locations that are opening soon are listed on our website. Unfortunately, West Springfield is not on the list at this time,” the company wrote in a statement to FFXnow.

Earlier this year, the Washington Business Journal reported that Trader Joe’s had executed a lease for the Old Keene Mill Center space, but Springfield Plaza property owner Rappaport suggested at the time that the grocery store could still retain its existing location.

Trader Joe’s lease at Springfield Plaza is currently set to expire on Jan. 31, 2024, according to the WBJ.
