That’ll Be One Busy Parking Lot

Trader Joe’s is supposed to open at Southpointe in early December. This weekend I visited Hobby Town, which sits right next to the future Trader Joe’s. The parking lot was impressively packed even without Trader Joe’s being open. Combine the opening of a new store with the Christmas shopping season and wow that east parking lot is going to be a zoo. Don’t forget your walking shoes!

I was at South Pointe yesterday too and thought the same thing.  Good luck getting in those parking lots after Trader Joes opens to do any Christmas shopping.

If it’s still as nice as it is now, a person can easily ride a bike down there to pick up a few items.

Yeah but, look to the parking lot to the south, the one in front of OfficeMax. it’s mostly empty most of the time. Plus, Trader Joe’s doesn’t appear to be that big. It shouldn’t need a parking lot as large as Hy-Vee needs.

Were you buying Magic cards? You were buying Magic cards weren’t you?

Out of all the stuff inside Hobby Town, Magic cards are probably among the top five things I would least like to buy. Just about everything else is fair game, though.

This trip I was buying an Erector Set. I meant to also see what they had for magnets, but I forgot.

So miracles not Magic, eh?
