In tomorrow’s edition of Preston Hollow People, I write about Trader Joe’s coming to town, but will be positioned next to some stark competition.
The popular grocer will be located in Preston Hollow Village next to a Spec’s, and Total Wine and More. I had never been to Specs before, but after shopping through their infinite isles the other day, I was told that they will match any price a competitor offers. Including the well-priced alcohol sold at Trader Joe’s.
I also spoke with Total Wine and More’s communication director (who is opening their doors to the public today) and they said that they will have no problem competing with the other stores, because they have the most knowledgeable staff in town.
So with that said, which shop do you plan to buy your alcohol from? I’m leaning toward Trader Joe’s, but I’m a sucker for a hip grocery store.
