The developer of Mid-City Huntsville launched a campaign on their Facebook page in an effort to attract Trader Joe's to build a grocery store in the multi-use complex.
The post includes this link which allows people to fill out a form recommending Trader Joe's open a location in their city.
The grocery chain has approximately 475 stores in 43 states. The only Alabama location is at The Summit shopping center in Birmingham.
Trader Joe's stocks a fraction of the items found in a traditional market store, and the majority of items sold are from their own brand.
They have the same parent company as the popular German grocery chain Aldi.
It was recently announced Aldi would be another location in Huntsville in a shopping center at Drake Avenue and South Memorial Parkway. It will be the fourth location in Madison County.
Both The Village at Providence and Bridge Street Town Center pushed similar campaigns last year in hopes of attracting Trader Joe's to their respective developments.
