WESTFIELD, NJ — Trader Joe’s announced Monday that it plans to reopen at its location in Westfield after its store was badly damaged in this weekend’s blizzard.

“Our store at 155 Elm Street in Westfield, NJ, was severely damaged during this past weekend’s storm: a portion of the roof collapsed, and the building is no longer suitable for use,” the company said. “Thankfully, the store was closed when this happened, no customers or Crew were present — and no one was hurt.”

All Crew Members from Trader Joe’s Westfield store have the option to work at other locations and the company is in the process of setting up those reassignments, it said.

Officials said the building would likely need to be razed. Streets on either side of the store have been blocked off to traffic because of the likelyhood of further collapse.

“We intend to reopen in this location. Understanding the time it will take to reopen is a work-in-progress, as we determine what needs to be done. As soon as we have a realistic timeframe, we will share our plans,” the company wrote. 

“To our Westfield Customers, we value your patience and look forward to welcoming you back into your store as soon as possible," it wrote.
