The grocery store, popular for its specialty food products and Hawaiian shirt-clad employees, has filed an application for a certificate of compliance for wine sales, according to city documents.
The Franklin Board of Mayor and Aldermen is expected to consider the application as part of its consent agenda, which typically does not require board discussion, during its Feb. 23 meeting.
The site listed in the application is 545 Cool Springs Blvd., Ste. 115, Franklin, the former site of Stein Mart, which closed in 2020.
The store has existing locations in Nashville in Green Hills and near Belle Meade.
Community Impact Newspaper has reached out to representatives with Trader Joe's on whether a location is slated to open on this site. This story will be updated with more information.
