WESTFIELD, NJ — Past the fencing that still surrounds the rebuilt Trader Joe's in Downtown Westfield, shelves, decorations and registers can be seen through the shop's windows. 

Banners outside the store read “now hiring.” (Call 201-563-8356 or visit www.traderjoes.com to inquire.)

Trader Joe's has not returned requests for comments about the store’s target opening date, but employees at its Millburn location have reportedly told customers it will be at the beginning of December.

The grocery store, considered an anchor store in Downtown Westfield, was demolished this in February after its roof collapsed during January’s blizzard.

Trader Joe’s is located at 155 Elm Street.
