After months of rumors, grocery chain Trader Joe's confirmed that it will open its first store in San Antonio, occupying the former spot of the West Elm furniture store at the Quarry Village.

The grocery chain has amassed a cult following across the nation, especially in cities where its stores are absent. There are Facebook groups dedicated to the grocer, including a page called San Antonio Needs a Trader Joe's, which has nearly 550 members.
