Trader Joe’s opens Mentor location today
MENTOR, Ohio (WOIO) - Following a delay prompted by severe weather, Trader Joe’s opened its doors to shoppers at the new Mentor location on Monday morning.
The 9,900 square-foot store is located at 9474 Mentor Avenue along historic RT-20 between Old Johnny Cake Ridge Road and Heisley Road.
It will be open each day from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Trader Joe’s said the Mentor Avenue store’s interior “will feature artwork that highlights several points of interest in the area, including Lake Erie, Headlands Beach State Park, and the Mentor Lagoons.”
“As a neighborhood grocery store, Trader Joe’s prides itself on hiring from the community,” the company said. “More than 95% of the crew members hired at the Mentor store are from the neighborhood.”
