Trader Joe's Opened: unknown Previous Tenants: unknown Location: 404 NJ-17 N, Paramus, NJ Photographed: November 2019 Trader Joe's is known for upscale retailing with a sense of humor. Unfortunately, so is their competitor Stew Leonard's , which is four times the size of this 20,000 square foot store, much better at nearly everything than Trader Joe's, and just 0.4 miles away. I find Trader Joe's completely uninteresting because all of their stores are exactly the same. However, we will be touring one of their New Jersey locations in a while. Head over to The Independent Edition tomorrow to check out an under-construction produce market, our last store in Paramus!
