HALFMOON — Trader Joe’s new location in Halfmoon is officially open for business.
On Sept. 8, the Trader Joe’s in Halfmoon opened its doors following a ribbon-cutting ceremony. At 3 Halfmoon Crossing, this is the first Trader Joe’s in Saratoga County. Store Captain Thomas Witte, who is a 20-year veteran of the company, will manage the approximate 12,500 sq. ft. store, open from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily.
The ceremony also featured live music, and the first 100 customers were given a bouquet of fresh flowers and a welcoming from Trader Joe’s Crew Members. There was a build-up of excitement in the community around the opening, and a line had already formed before the ribbon-cutting was underway.
“Some faces I recognize from around the community, and some I don’t,” said Witte after the ribbon cutting. “We are hoping to make a good first impression here today.”
Trader Joe’s offers “unconventional and interesting products” with their label, as well as fresh grocery staples. This location features colorful artwork that pays tribute to the area, including the Twin Bridges, Saratoga County apple orchards, and wildlife native to the shores of the Mohawk and Hudson Rivers.
“The Town of Halfmoon is proud that Trader Joe’s has chosen Halfmoon as its home for another location. Trader Joe’s will be another grocer that provides unique products to our town’s residents and our community,” said Town Supervisor Kevin J. Tollisen. “At the grand opening this morning, it was evident that so many people were looking forward to this new grocer in our community. We wish Trader Joe’s great success in the Town of Halfmoon and thank them for their long-term investment in our community.”
As your “neighborhood grocery store”, 80% of the Crew Members at the Halfmoon store are local to the community. Hiring efforts are still underway, and anyone interested in applying should visit traderjoes.com/careers for more information.
