Trader Joe's coming to West Seattle; Former Huling Bros. location
The much loved and somewhat quirky Trader Joe's grocery store is coming to West Seattle. The new location will be in the former Huling Brothers (briefly Gee Automotive) Buick location at 4545 Fauntleroy Way S.W. according to the Seattle Department of Planning and Development website showing permit status. You can see the construction permit here http://web1.seattle.gov/DPD/permitstatus/Project.aspx?id=6231775
The permit states "Interior remodel and some minor exterior improvements to existing commercial building for new Trade Joe's grocery store."
While no official comment from the company has been offered, when the West Seattle Herald spoke to a team member at the Burien location
we were told, "It's all done. The papers have been signed and they will start working on it as soon as they can."
The chain is a specialty grocery store and currently has 340 stores. It is privately held. They are headquartered in Monrovia California. Roughly half of its stores are in California, with the largest number in Southern California. Trader Joes can also be found in 24 other states and Washington, D.C.
