CORALVILLE, Iowa (KCRG-TV9) -- The new Trader Joe's store opened in Coralville today with hundreds of shoppers filling the aisles.

It was standing room only this afternoon. Workers had to keep re-stocking the shelves.

The parking lot was constantly full. One woman drove an hour to get there, and she said she was very impressed.

"Every time I was looking for something, somebody helped me find it. Everybody was smiling. Everyone was nice. I'll be back again," said Kirsten Lambert of Anamosa.

Trader Joe's is open seven days a week from 8:00 A.M. to 9:00 P.M.
