This is the best news ever! Finally I can start shopping again at Pleasanton's Trader Joe's rather than Livermores as I couldn't stand battling the parking lot every time I went. Congrats and it couldnt come any time too soon. Yeah!!

That's such great news! I have had concerns about safety issues related to the current Trader Joe's parking lot. The relocation will eliminate the problem.

I was so relieved to find that Trader Joe's in just moving its location and not out of the area. The expanded parking lot will be a huge plus as I often wonder if I'm going to get out of the old one unscathed. It's one of my favorite stores!

Too bad the owner was a Nazi tycoon not a contributor to our American economy !
Nothing in that store is made in America.
Shocking isn't it ? Marketing to our American sensibilities but foreign to the core..Google it folks.

For several months now we have been under the assumption that Trader Joe's would be moving into the old Fresh N Easy vacated store. Now this is new news.

According to the landlord's website, Trader Joe's is moving to former Fresh N Easy space. Total Wine is moving to the former CVS site.

I'm confused. Is Trader Joe's moving to the vacant CVS or to old Fresh and Easy? Jp74d

Absolutely wonderful news! No more of that awful parking lot. Wish it could be sooner than another year.

I don't know what WilliamG means by "nothing in that store is made in America!" Completely untrue. A lot of their produce and some frozen goods are imported and many specialty items are imported but, the majority of everyday staples (milk, eggs, bread, juice, cereal, beer, wine, chips, etc.) are made in the U.S.

The parking lot for this store has been a nightmare since the day they opened. In fact, it became even worse when they took over the adjacent store quite a few years ago. This move is a long time coming and one really has to wonder why it took so long.

Also, great to hear Total Wine is coming into the old CVS/Longs store at Rosewood Pavillion. Their selection is incredible and pretty good prices.

@Meadowlark
trader Joes is going into the old Fresh and Easy location (I have known about this for a couple of months now). Total Wines and More is going into the old CVS location across the street where Longs Drugs was before CVS took over in 2009.

I noticed the confusion too in the article and title.

Good bye worst parking lot in Pleasanton, soon I will be shopping back at p-town store instead of going to Livermore. Made more sense to drive those extra miles and not have to participate in the "demolition derby" going on at that p-town lot.

Looking for clarification on the Trader Joes relocation. The Trader Joes website has the address listed for the old Longs/CVS location while Pleasanton Weekly lists the address for the vacated Fresh and Easy location.

It's in the Fresh and Easy location. There is a sign on the front, one of those public notices of change of ownership, to Trader Joe's.

Trader Joe's is moving to the old CVS location, not where Fresh & Easy used to be. It even says that on their website. 4225 Rosewood Drive Pleasanton, CA 94588.
The Fresh & Easy location isn't much larger than their current location.

Web Link shows Total Wine is moving into the old CVS store. Trader Joes is moving near where Fresh and Easy was across the street.

4225 is the address of multiple tenant spaces.
