has 859 signatures, but that’s still a long way off from the 5,000 the petition’s organizer seeks.
The petition reached 750 signatures on July 4. Is it no coincidence that this milestone was reached on our nation’s Independence Day? The majority of the signatures are from Smyrna residents, but it looks like there are a few Marietta folks pulling for a more conveniently located TJ.
One signee said he’d like to see a Trader Joe’s at the corner of Spring Road and Atlanta Road in the .
“Other TJ's locations are way too far to travel on a regular basis, and this is our favorite place to shop for groceries,” he said. “Smyrna is up and coming and could really use one (Ideally at the corner of Spring/Atlanta where a Publix was originally intended to go). This is central to Smyrna and would be a great inbound and outbound place to stop!”
Two other Trader Joe’s fans explained that the drive to East Cobb and Buckhead is too inconvenient.
