There is a new Trader Joe's on the Sunset Strip at Crescent Heights in the old Virgin Megatore Complex. It's been open almost a month--since March 13th to be exact. A visit around lunchtime proved the store to be nearly empty.

"People who work there say it is never crowded, as even the neighbors don't seem to know it's open yet," LAist Contributor Lisa Borodkin said in an e-mail from her cell phone.

The popular grocery chain recently opened a storefront in Westwood Village and is planning a large location on Olympic at Barrington in West LA. The well-established Sherman Oaks location was known as storefront with the highest Los Angeles area customer count.
