Rumor FALSE: Trader Joe’s to open in Puyallup at Summit Trading Store

I recently reported the sad news that Summit Trading in Puyallup will be closing its doors. Over the last couple days, I’ve heard rumors circulating that Trader Joe’s would be occupying the space. I’ve been waiting to confirm or deny the rumor before reporting on it as several readers have asked me what I knew.

According to this post at the News Tribune, the rumor is indeed false:

Trader Joe’s doesn’t plan to open in Puyallup in the next two years, a company spokeswoman said Friday.

Thanks to those of you that alerted me about this rumor. If I learn anything different, I will certainly let you know.
