First Whole Foods set up shop in Columbus Square. Now, Trader Joe’s is coming to the Upper West Side.

The specialty food store is planning to open on West 72nd Street and Broadway sometime in 2010.

Trader Joe’s is keeping a tight lid on additional details, such as size of the store or the exact opening date.

This will be the second Trader Joe’s in Manhattan, after the store’s Union Square location. But unlike the Union Square counterpart, the Upper West Side Trader Joe’s will not have a wine shop next door. Under New York State’s antiquated liquor laws, only one license can be given to any business or person.
