Trader Joe’s signs from Upland live on


Signs from the interior south wall of the Upland Trader Joe’s, which closed last month, haven’t left town: The Cooper Regional History Museum, 217 A St., has them. Director Marilyn Anderson requested and got them from the manager. They were on the wall to your left if you were checking out. Upland-themed signs that named each checkstand were claimed by a second history nonprofit, Upland Heritage.

    So sorry the place closed. The signs show it was a little part of Upland. Is there any word on what will fill those two large spaces at Mountain Green? Please, not a “dollar store.”

      I haven’t heard anything about the TJ’s space, no.

    It’s just a shame to see them leave Upland. I loved making my weekly trek over to Trader Joe’s to discover new items to try on my family. Tee-hee….. I guess the one in San Dimas is closer to me anyway. I hope we get one in Pomona….. someday.

    I will continue to hold out hope that TJ’s will locate back to Montclair some day. I speculate that the cost of rent was the deciding factor in its previous moves from, both, Montclair and Upland. There are quite a few open spaces at the Towncenter on Central Ave.

    I heard on Saturday that a new Hancock Fabrics is going into the Party City space, and then found a Jan 14 article in the DB that confirms it. Hancock carries craft items as well as fabrics, so Michael’s and Hobby Lobby will have some new competition. Sewers (I really hate that word, used in this context) and crafters like me will love it!

    The same article notes: “There are already several perspective [sic] retailers looking to fill the 10,000-square-foot space Trader Joe’s currently occupies.”

      Thanks for offering your prospective. Er, perspective!
