Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

A few weeks ago, a tipster spotted a liquor license application pasted to the door of 1600 N. Vine Street. The applicant? Just a little greengrocer called Trader Joe's. Now, we've got photos of the construction site, and it looks massive. Hollywood, your population of microwavable shu mai is about to skyrocket.

Update: Looks like those photos belonged to a different construction site—thanks for the catch, commenters. Stay tuned for a post on the actual massive TJs/Walgreens combo coming to West LA.
