Opening day for Trader Joe’s in Coralville has finally been announced. The island-themed specialty supermarket will hold a “lei-cutting ceremony” at 7:55 a.m. on Friday, October 6. The store will open for business five minutes later.

A press release from the company promises free tastings and giveaways as part of the opening day celebration. The press release also says the 13,000 square foot Iowa River Landing store “will feature murals of such landmarks as the Old Capitol Building, the Iowa River and Hancher Auditorium.”
