Trader Joe in Livermore

So, the Trader Joe's has opened in Livermore on Friday. Oddly enough, the official website does not list the new store, so the link goes to Yelp.

The store seems like a carbon copy of the old one in Pleasanton. It has decidedly better selection, but this may be an artifact of its neweness. Parking is much better, it's a normal supermarket plaza with decently sized slots. At the old place, some bitch in a Volvo dented by car noticeably when backing out because she started turning too early.

The main downside is very poor access. Driving through Livermore is a drag, no matter if you take 1st or N. Livermore. The 1st is choked now even beyond the junction with the Railroad, which sucks. Stupid Livermore. If not the piss poor parking at the Pleasanton store, I would be able to persuade myself easily that the Livermore store is not worth the trouble.

I heard unofficial rumblings that we were going to get one here in Tracy by the Chili's. Hear anything about that?
That would be great!

I agree, it would be great, but so far nothing is known.
