BRIDGEWATER, NJ - Trader Joe's, in the Bridgewater Promenade, is set to officially open its doors Nov. 1.

A sign on the front door sets the date for the opening in the building that formally held the Golfsmith.

Anticipation for the new store has been mounting since Bridgewater Township confirmed, in May, that it would be opening. Planning board approval was granted in December to make changes to the property to make it a grocery store.

The property also includes extra square footage from the adjacent Old Navy, for a total of 13,600 square feet.
