Bring Trader Joe's to Woodbridge
We, the undersigned, urge Trader Joe's to open a location in Woodbridge, Virginia, a thriving community just over 20 miles south of Washington, D.C. and located in Prince William County, one of the most affluent jurisdictions in the U.S. and an area of continued economic growth. We wish to access a Trader Joe's without getting stuck in traffic on I-95, allowing us to patron the store more frequently and share our love of Trader Joe's with friends and neighbors.
A public-private investment of more than $1 billion in "New Woodbridge" is resulting in smart-growth developments, widening of Route 1 and the addition of bike and pedestrian trails. Now, we need the level of retail to keep pace with these enhancements. Trader Joe's would benefit from the increased disposable income and density here, while Woodbridge will benefit from the increased economic activity. Woodbridge District Supervisor Frank J. Principi has volunteered to meet with store officials, answering their questions, providing data and introducing them to developers, economic experts and others who can assist in securing an opportune location in Woodbridge. Traveling at his own expense, he will personally deliver the petition to Trader Joe's headquarters in Monrovia, Ca. For more information, visit newwb.org/TJtoPW.
