Trader Joe's to open second Colorado store on Eighth Avenue

Trader Joe's has signed a deal for its first location in Denver, according to this story in the Denver Business Journal. The store will be on the southeast corner of Colorado Boulevard and Eighth Avenue, where Annie's Cafe was once located.

The spot was supposed to become a hotel, but like so many big plans for the old University of Colorado complex, that project never got off the ground.

The first Trader Joe's in Colorado will open next year at the Twenty Ninth Street development in Boulder; that store is slated to get the one liquor location that a chain is alloted under Colorado law.

According to the DBJ, Trader Joe's would not confirm that it had chosen the Colorado Boulevard site -- but it looks like a done deal.

Is that a good spot for Trader Joe's? Where would you like to see a store?
