The rumors have been confirmed--Trader Joe's will move into 16,744 square feet at the former Rosauers store site on Eagle Road, according to Don Day of BoiseDev.com.
This will be the second store in the Treasure Valley after the first location on the corner of Capital Blvd. and Front Street, which opened it small store and tiny parking lot in 2014 on a parcel that set a new record for land costs at about $50 per square foot.
This popular California-based chain will occupy about a third of the vacant Rosauers space with the other two-thirds to be leased to other tenants. The retenanting of this space should now be considerably easier with the popularity of Trader Joe's.
No opening date has been set as of yet. However, Day reports that tenant improvements on the building are "well underway."
