Trader Joes Applies for Alcohol Permit at New 23rd and Wilshire Location
Notice of Application to Sell Alcoholic Beverages sign has appeared at that location
January 19, 2019
Trader Joe's has pulled a permit to sell alcohol at a new location it intends to open at 23rd Street and Wilshire Blvd in Santa Monica.
When the car wash at that location was torn down in May, the neighborhood was full or rumors that the national grocery chain would soon draw a ton of traffic to the already crowded intersection, by opening a new store. The rumor now appears to be correct, as a Notice of Application to Sell Alcoholic Beverages sign has appeared at that location.
"It Could bring more cars, scooters, bikes and Ubers as well as garbage and delivery trucks + maybe rats and even hungry coyotes!!! On the other hand many residents will love a TJ's within walking distance and with better parking than the TJ's on Pico. Either way, similarly to the WF on Wilshire which surprised the neighbors this one is doing the same," said one local real estate agent.
