Facebook page shows support for local Trader Joe’s

A new Facebook page has been created that’s dedicated to bringing Trader Joe’s to Fredericksburg.

Area residents have consistently cited the grocer atop a list of businesses not currently in the Fredericksburg area that they’d most like to see here.

“Let’s show Trader Joe’s that we are ready to support a store here in Fredericksburg,” reads the message on the new page. “Help put us on their radar by liking and sharing this page.”

The page was created Sunday and already had more than 1,300 “likes” by Tuesday afternoon.

Trader Joe’s looked at the former Borders space in Central Park before Barnes & Noble leased the building a couple of years ago. The company’s next-closest stores are in the Richmond area and Springfield.
