Trader Joe’s, a nationwide chain that’s created a legion of food-loving fans, announced it will open its first Spokane store next year.

The Southern California company confirmed Wednesday it will lease a 12,000-square foot building on Spokane’s South Hill.

The location is at the Lincoln Heights Shopping Center, at 29th and South Regal (map).

The specialty grocery chain has looked at opening a Spokane store for several years. Earlier this year it began looking seriously at Spokane’s South Hill for its first local store, said Jeff Ottmar, who works for a Spokane company that represented property owner Lincoln Heights Center LLC.
