Trader Joe’s just made a huge announcement that is going to change the way you shop at the store forever. More than 20 new Trader Joe’s stores will be opening this year, which means your travel and shopping time is about to get so much easier and less time-consuming. (Not to mention, so much more exciting!)

“Here are some new Trader Joe’s stores opening soon!” the caption of a recent Trader Joe’s Stalk Instagram post, first shared on May 13, reads. “Raise your hand if you live near one of the new store locations.” 

“Harlem?!?!” one shopper commented on the post, with another adding, “Murrieta!” The more Trader Joe’s locations there are, the better life will be!

In fact, one of these locations — the San Francisco Hayes Valley store (located at 555 Fulton Street) — is already open. It just started welcoming shoppers on May 17. And the Boylston Street Trader Joe’s in Boston is slated to open on Thursday, May 23, at 500 Boylston. The street sign was installed earlier this month and Bostonians are champing at the bit to get inside and start shopping.

Last month, Trader Joe’s opened new stores in Middletown, New Jersey, and Vancouver, Washington. You can stay up to date with all the above store openings over on Trader Joe’s announcements board

Opening dates for most of the announced locations are still TBD, but will be posted there once all the details have been ironed out.

Once these new locations open, there will be just under 550 Trader Joe’s locations nationwide, meaning you can get your Dunkaroos, Everything But The Bagel Seasoning, and frozen hash browns no matter where your travels take you.
