An article in today’s Press Herald on the closing of LL Bean’s Portland store casts doubt on the possibility of Trader Joe’s landing in the spot.
Alison Mochizuki, spokeswoman for California-based Trader Joe’s, said Monday that “Portland, Maine, is not in our two-year plan.”

I was in the Trader Joe’s in Danvers, MA on Sunday. Chatting with the checkout clerk, he volunteered, “we’re opening in Portland in the next year and a half.” I’d believe the checkout clerk.
I’ll happily believe that checkout clerk as well!
First Whole Foods and now possibly Trader Joe’s. Portland is definitely ON THE MAP!
I second the ‘heard it from a MA cashier,’ this one said 6 months and they’ll be in Portland!
