The new Trader Joe's at 11755 Olympic Blvd. is officially open for business, and a quick-thinking tipster obtained some photos from the opening day. Despite a few commenters' claims that West LA already has more TJ's than is really necessary, it looks like the store wasn't lacking for customers during its first hours—especially considering it's a Friday afternoon. And for all those concerned about the parking situation, our informant has good news: "As thought, the parking is on the roof. Actually it looks like quite a bit of parking up there." Indeed it does.
