Let's not let all this talk of a Trader Joe's for Brooklyn distract us from the progress of TJ's Queens. The store, which was initially supposed to open this spring, has been delayed until sometime in September, and, according to store execs, "even that date is tentative." Keep this in mind, Brooklyn: "The California-based grocery chain announced plans to open its first-ever Queens location last November." That should give you an idea of how long to expect the store on Atlantic and Court to take.
