Wicker Wire: In yet another surprising turn of events, Trader Joe's has decided not to pursue a location in the former Miller Lumber site located at 1811 W. Division Street according to a report published earlier today by DNA Info. This comes as surprising news because the LaSalle II Elementary School located directly across the street at 1148 N. Honore Street had recently voted to support the grocer's project.

According to today's report, and after many months of meetings, Trader Joe's has decided not to pursue the Wicker Park location because "they did not feel that they were welcome in the community". Alderman Moreno confirmed the news today and is encouraging Trader Joe's to evaluate additional locations in Wicker Park and Logan Square.

San Francisco-based bag company Timbuk2 has moved in to a former 2100 square foot Bucktown firehouse and former location of Nanette Lepore at 1623 N. Damen Avenue. The focus here is on bike messenger-esque bags and any type of bag that helps keep you moving. Started by cyclists in 1989, Timbuk2 will also launch a bike-sharing program next month offering tubes, pumps and tools for community use. An indoor "parklet" is also planned so Timbuk2 customers can kick back and relax while in the store.

A Grand Opening Party is planned for May 17th from 2pm -8pm that will include tamales courtesy of the Tamale Spaceship food truck and beer via Revolution Brewery (2323 N. Milwaukee Avenue). 


For full details check out their Event page on Facebook.
