That’s the talk among some residents and employees who work in the shops that share the building with the always-busy Trader Joe’s in Silver Lake. The store on Hyperion Avenue has apparently agreed to lease the space in the adjacent Video Hut, which is closing, said employees at the video store and the adjoining dry cleaners. Trader Joe’s store managers declined to comment, referring questions to the chain’s public relations department. Can that parking lot handle a bigger TJ’s? The Eastsider is awaiting a comment from the company.
* Update: A company spokeswoman said “we have no confirmation” about any possible expansion and added that Trader Joe’s does not usually comment on such matters until it’s a done deal.
