TRADER JOE’s Opening near Southdowns

Posted on January 19, 2013



Trader Joe’s, a 13,000-square-foot specialty supermarket, will be the anchor tenant for a 54,000-square-foot shopping center, Acadian Village, at Perkins Road and Acadian Thruway.

Acadian Village plans to include several other high-end, well-known national retailers, says Tina Rance, marketing director for the property.

“Baton Rouge is the first Louisiana location for Trader Joe’s, and we feel that it will be a regional draw as well,” Rance says.

According to information released by Trader Joe’s in July, the store’s interior will feature a festive décor that mixes cedar-covered walls and Hawaiian motifs with local art. The shopping center will sit behind the new Galatoire’s Bistro.
