    Just though I would share something I got via the “West Seattle want’s a TJs” facebook page. I have zero details other than what is in the artice, which really isn’t much. But who cares, YEAHHHH!!!!!

    what was posted on the FB page is old news..it’s an article from weeks ago (May 18) in the WS Herald…which came after WSB first posted about it in April.. The permit is open..initial info collected. The way I understand it, it’s not solid, written in stone – yet.

    I answered the person who decided to circulate that on the Facebook group today, explaining the whole thing. Guess she didn’t correct it. We spoke again to Steve Huling in person last Wednesday. Nothing is final. Believe me, I am working on this story every day, looking for signs that it is official, and if and when it is, we will report it in huge type. No one has been following this story more closely for the past three-plus years than we have.

    Ya I got the message on facebook and remembered the discussion on here. I wonder why she didn’t correct it.

    I’m going to have to unfriend that FB thing if they keep giving me heart attacks like that.

    we are spoiled here to have a reporting staff that digs for the news instead of reporting rumors and press releases without checking further…

    that’s a sad reflection on the news industry as a whole… but it certainly seems to be true.

    Doc, don’t feel silly. I emailed the link to the WSB editor. I agree…if I am going to be thier FB friend they shouldn’t get me so excited in the middle of the day. I have work to do!

    When I went to the Burien TJ’s a few weeks ago, one of the checkers said they’d be opening in West Seattle by next year. He didn’t give me any specifics of course, but it sounded pretty legit to me.

    As I said before, if I were a betting woman, I would say this one has the most chance of happening. But TJ also was supposedly a done deal at 42nd/Admiral in 2006 (before we revved into news), for example. Not only did it not happen, the development itself (which was supposed to replace the building that is now home to Crossfit, Shipwreck Tavern, Heartland Cafe) never happened. The annotation in the DPD system for a “14,000 square foot grocery store” remains in the system to this day:

    As I’ve said in a few e-mail replies to people, TMI probably, and this is like sausage-making, you don’t want to know the up-close-and-personal grinding, you just want the sausage. But if someone takes information we had already reported – and only part of it, to boot – and reaches a different conclusion, we feel the need to explain.

    Getting back to reporting/researching … happy Wednesday to all!

    See the home page.

    The company announced it this morning.

    NOW it’s official.

    I’m on the phone with Steve Huling right now.

    Yes, I admit I’m excited, but I still trust PCC most, especially for produce, meats, and the affordability of bulk buying.
