Palos Verdes Trader Joe’s Opens!

The day is finally here.  We have our own Palos Verdes Trader Joe’s!  It doesn’t take much to make us happy.  The store opened at 8:00 a.m. and when I arrived in the afternoon, the parking lot was full (but with cars coming and going, it was easy to find  spot).  The store was also full of smiling shoppers.

The Palos Verdes Trader Joe’s has murals painted on the walls to depict local points of interest and vistas of the ocean.  According to the Peninsula News, “Elaborately decorated signage tells shoppers about local attractions, such as the Point Vicente Interpretive Center and Lighthouse, and the South Coast Botanic Garden.”  I have to admit with all the shoppers today that I missed that but I am sure that I will see it the next time I am there.  I am a Trader Joe’s fan and look forward to weekly visits.

Many are wondering if the opening of the Palos Verdes Trader Joe’s will take some of the pressure off the Riviera Vilage Trader’s in Redondo Beach which is parking challenged.  The only little hint I can give new shoppers who go to our Palos Verdes Trader Joe’s in the afternoon is to take care not to get in to the Montessori School student pickup line if your are exiting onto Hawthorne Boulevard.

The Palos Verdes Trader Joe’s is located at 31176 Hawthorne Blvd, Rancho Palos Verdes 90275 (in the Golden Cove Center at the intersection of Hawthorne Blvd. and Palos Verdes Drive West) and is open from 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. daily.  Phone number is 310-54-1727
