No Trader Joe’s for AfricanAme­rican neighborho­od


The Trader Joe’s grocery-store chain has dropped a plan to open a new store in the heart of the city’s historical­ly African-American neighborho­od after activists said the developmen­t would price black residents out of the area. The grocer, whose stores are found in urban neighborho­ods across the nation, said Monday it wouldn’t press its plan, given community resistance.
