Mayor Seeking Gourmet Grocery Chain for Trenton

Trenton Mayor Kyle Stack has sent several emails to a major gourmet grocery chain to encourage the company to open up shop on Van Horn in Trenton.

Trader Joe's has four locations in Michigan and Trenton Mayor Kyle Stack wants to add one more to the mitten.

Stack has contacted the major gourmet grocery chain four times via email to recommend they bring the store to Trenton.

Stack said she thinks the former site of the 3000 Van Horn Road, on the corner of Fort Street and Van Horn Road would be the perfect spot to house a Trader Joe's.

A representative of Trader Joe's responded to one of Stack's emails Tuesday afternoon:

"Rest assured, every email is read and your recommendation will be passed along to our real estate folks."

A connection has been made. What do you think about Trader Joe's coming to Trenton? If not Trader Joe's, then what?

Kudos Mayor Stack for initiating new business in Trenton. Trader Joes would be great! Close to Grosse Ile and neighboring cities downriver it would be great.

I agree! There are plenty of people who go out of their way to go to TJ's and also whole Food. Another option for the mayor I think would be Westborn Market or Plum Market. But Trader Joe's would do a terrific business here because of price, service and quality of goods.

I congratulate Mayor Stack for trying to fill the space ~ I am for a Whole foods ~ Not a trader Joe's :(
