A long awaited Trader Joe’s grocery store is finally coming to Palm Beach County.

The California-based grocer will open this Friday in Wellington at 2877 S. State Road 7.

Trader Joe’s plans to open three other locations in Boca Raton, Delray Beach and Palm Beach Gardens later this year, according to the Sun-Sentinel. And stores are set to come to Broward County and Fort Lauderdale in 2015.

“You go to Costco to shop if it’s a party at work. Trader Joe’s is where you shop if you’re having a dinner party at home,” said Ellen Book, a librarian from Coral Gables who shops at the Pinecrest Trader Joe’s that opened in October. [Sun-Sentinel] Christopher Cameron
