  1. “In the early stages of the planning process”? Unless I misread them, I thought there were signs in the Trader Joe’s that they were opening the expanded space next week.

    But bike racks is a great idea, as is some sort of local shuttle.

  2. I guess the parking is pretty tight. Not too bad for those of us on motorcycles and scooters though…there is always room for at least 3 bikes in the back left corner by the cart return.

    If there was a shuttle, I would definitely use it, as I’m limited to maybe a bag and a half on my scooter. Maybe Hyperion > Rowena > Glendale > Sunset > back to Hyperion? At least until we get our own TJs in Echo Park. Which will be…when? 🙂
