Town Without a Name

When Albertson's closed in the Alma Plaza shopping center, some hoped that Trader Joe's would be a willing tenant. We learn today (page 4) that Trader Joe's has decided to move to an unnamed city near West El Camino Real and Showers Drive. Welcome to (insert city name here)! If it isn't too far away some residents of South Palo Alto might want to make the trip.

Update: A reader points out that Whole Foods would be establishing a new location in an anonymous city--not Trader Joe's. Trader Joe's has a store near the unnamed location of the future Whole Foods store--where ever that would be. (Mountain View)

ummm, Bob, that would be Mountain View and the store listed is Whole Foods, not Trader Joe's. Hope is still held for a Trader Joe's at Alma Plaza! A Trader Joe's is presently at the West El Camino location mentioned in the news item.

I still believe that Mountain View Market, a Chinese food store, would make an excellent addition to Alma.
with Palo Alto's usual dithering, I expect Alma Plaza to go the way of EPA's Littleman's center.
