Under Construction: Trader Joe’s

The FTC has approved Trader Joe’s purchase of the old Wild Oats store on Marginal Way. (PPH)

Trader Joe’s hasn’t commented formally on its plans for Portland, but it did apply last month for food service and wine and liquor licenses from the city.

The approval of the sale and the actual transaction were expected to be the last barriers before the company renovates the building and announces details of its plans.
