One of my favorite stores is Trader Joe's and for us here in Ocean County, it's a trip to find one here in New Jersey.

According to some recent rumors, a Trader Joe's may be coming to Brick Township in the former Ethan Allen store in the Township.

A spokesperson for the Company had this to say about the rumors ... "We are interested in bringing a store to that location and are taking the necessary steps to make that happen. However, plans are not finalized. I look forward to sharing additional information if/when there's more to share."

Does this seem like a "positive" response?

This would be fantastic and save Ocean County residents a lot of driving to shop at Trader's. Trader Joe's is a unique store and for us a healthy alternative to help with our "keto" friendly diet.

Of course, even though it's a strong rumor, we will have to wait and see, but Ocean County needs a Trader Joe's and Brick would be a perfect spot for this store to add to our shopping choices here in the County.

Currently the closest Trader Joe's is located in Monmouth County in Shrewsbury. (1031 Broad St Shrewsbury, NJ 07702)
