California-based grocery chain Trader Joe’s announced Sept. 4 it has signed a lease for a 13,500-square-foot store in Southlake Town Square that will open in 2014.

The 13,500-square-foot neighborhood store will be built on an undeveloped parcel at the northwest corner of Southlake Boulevard and Central Avenue. In addition to the 3,000 Trader Joe’s private label brand, the new store will offer beer and wine. Trader Joe’s also announced plans to open an additional location in Katy outside of Houston, which also is slated to open next year.

Trader Joe’s has 10 Texas locations open or in development. Its first Texas stores opened in 2012 in Fort Worth and in The Woodlands near Houston. Trader Joe’s began in 1958 in the Los Angeles area and currently has more than 390 stores in 35 states.
