New Hampshire’s First-Ever Trader Joe’s Opens In Nashua

NHPR intern Tina Forbes, also a crew-member at Nashua’s brand-new Trader Joe’s, brought one of those quintessential tubs of Trader Joe’s miniature chocolate chip cookies to the office today, creating a noticeable boost to newsroom morale.

Indeed, the long-awaited Trader Joes store had its ribbon-cutting ceremony yesterday in Nashua, moving from bordering Tyngsborough, Massachusetts. Tom Galligani, director of Nashua’s Economic Development, says:

“It’s definitely positive for Nashua and New Hampshire… Trader Joe’s is one of those businesses like Whole Foods and Starbucks which people have a lot of brand-loyalty to, so even when they move a couple hundred feet, it’s big news.”
