The new Trader Joe's in the Bay celebrated it's grand opening Friday morning.


Tampa, Florida -- The new Trader Joe's in the Bay area celebrated it's grand opening Friday morning.

The line outside of Trader Joe's started forming early as eager people prepared to enter the new store.

Christian Estrada and Amy Riddle got in line first.

"We got here at midnight," said Estrada.

Trader Joe's is one of the couple's favorite grocery stores.

"It's amazing, that's all I got," said Riddle.

The excitement surrounding the 11,000 square foot store had shoppers packing their carts with produce and stocking up on snacks. Trader Joe's houses mainly it's own brand with hundreds of items to choose from, while aiming to keep costs lower at the check-out line.

"It's healthy food for good price," said a frequent Trader Joe's shopper.

From the delicious dips and spicy sauces to the marinated meats and flavorful cheeses, everyone has their favorite.

For Christian and Amy it was well worth the 8 hour wait, especially for the wine.

The Trader Joe brand wine is popular because of the price. The 2 buck chuck goes for only $2.99.
