As the old Independence Bank on Atlantic and Court sits empty, rumors have started to circulate that Trader Joe’s will not, in fact, open a supermarket in the building. The latest such buzz comes from a poster on the Cobble Hill Blog. The poster says that she/he works at the 14th Street TJ’s and was told by management that the store gave up on the Brooklyn location after dealings with landlord Two Trees turned sour. A representative for Two Trees, however, says the chatter is a lot of hooey, and that the store will eventually open. “The rumor is, well, just a rumor,” says the rep. No word, however, on when TJ’s is actually going to set up shop. The natives are getting restless, Joe!
