Trader Joes considering historic Alabama theater

September 17, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

Trader Joe’s considering historic theater, source says The historic Alabama Theatre at 2922 S. Shepherd Trader Joe’s is eyeing the old Alabama Theatre on Shepherd and West Alabama, according to a source familiar with the situation. Earlier this year, the grocer said it planned to open stores in Houston and Dallas.

Specific locations were not identified. Weingarten Realty, which owns the property, would not comment.

Neither would Trader Joe’s.

The location could make sense. Trader Joe’s stores are typically 10,000 to 15,000 square feet.

The old theatre space is around 14,000 square feet.

It’s been vacant since the fall of 2009 when the Bookstop closed.

And if Trader Joe’s opens there, it wouldn’t be the first time the shopping center housed a grocery store.

In its earlier days, Whole Foods operated a store in the property.
