FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – Changing their tune from fall, representatives of the Trader Joe’s grocery store chain said the company is now interested in opening a new store in Fort Wayne, but a potential location for the business has not yet been confirmed.

In September, a WANE 15 call to Trader Joe’s corporate office found little interest in Fort Wayne, despite being in the region in Ohio, Michigan, Illinois and Indianapolis. No new Summit City stores had been planned or seriously considered at that point.

Rumors began swirling early this year about renewed interest in the market. Trader Joe’s public relations director confirmed to WANE 15 the company is very interested in Fort Wayne.
