Trader Joe's In the Mix?

Add specialty grocer Trader Joe's to the roster of newcomers apparently setting up shop with Lowe's, Best Buy and others at the new big box center under construction at Routes 108 and 175. According to a mention deep in this Sun story, it is coming to Gateway Overlook. There's nothing on the Trader Joe's Web site about the timing, but a search through the company's job postings shows the chain is looking to hire a supervisor for its Columbia store, at $31,000 to $40,000 a year! (Thanks to Hayduke for the heads up).

I asked at the Silver Spring store for any 'intel;' they say that the store will open in the fall of this year. Best Buy is moving in on July 1. Trader Joe's often makes noise about their expansions saying supply chains are big determinants.
