My two favorite grocery stores are Wegmans and Trader Joe's. Utica has neither. So, I find myself constantly driving 45 minutes to Syracuse to go grocery shopping at Wegmans. Recently, I heard a rumor from Trader Joe's in Rochester that there will soon be a Trader Joe's opening in Syracuse. Needless to say, I was excited. Could it be--another one of my favorite grocery stores heading somewhat close to home? I contacted Trader Joe's and got a response.
