If Trader Joe’s broke ground on as many stores as the rumor mill says it has in the pipeline, the quirky organic food joint could rival Starbucks for most openings. Here’s one more for the pile: a PN Hoffman manager says the California-based grocer met today with the its representatives to discuss opening a store at 14th and V Streets NW, where the developer is currently building luxury condos. Other possibilities for the space include a bank, restaurant, and furniture store.

Trader Joe’s recently captured plenty of press for its first foray into New York City.

This all raises the question: Is there any upscale-retail chain D.C. still needs?
