Trader Joe’s Now Open at 8am on 14th Street

1916 14th Street, NW

“Dear PoPville,

Back in April, when it opened, I asked about the hours of the Trader Joe’s on 14th and T. It has opened at 9am rather than 8am. As someone who lives near by I like to hop into a grocery store on my way to work for fruit, lunch, etc. Walking to work today I notice that the Trader Joe’s looked open and the sign on the door had the 9 removed but no new time list.

Sure enough I just looked at the website and it lists the hours as 8AM – 10PM. I spoke with a staffer; he said they started opening at 8am on January 2nd.”

    Last weekend they had a big sign up announcing the change, along with the text “the customers asked and we listened”

  • You go to work late if you can stop at a grocery store after 8 on the way, lazy.

    • Or, you know, are a person who’s chosen to live close enough to walk, bike, or metro to a job without spending an hour and a half on the highway.

      • I am the person who wrote-in on this topic. First, apologies for the typo in my note to Popville. Second, I live 3 blocks from Trader Joe’s. I work downtown and walk the 30 minutes on most days. I can easily leave well past 8am, stop into Trader Joe’s or Whole Foods for lunch/snacks and arrive on time for work. Lucky me, not lazy. 🙂

    • That’s the most useless name-calling I’ve seen in a while, and that’s saying a lot because I read PoP regularly. Maybe s/he works late? Maybe s/he works a part-time job and has other things going on in life (maybe even school or a second part-time job)?

      This is a good reminder for all of us to slow our roll on the judging.

    • Or they work at night. Or they have a flexible start time. Or they just got off work at 8am. Or it’s their day off.

  • Awesome! I will certainly stop there on my way to work, now.
