Acadian Village, Trader Joe's, to open at the end of October

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - The new signs are up and the new Acadian Village is set to open in about a month. Trader Joe's, a tenant of the shopping center, is set to open at the end of October, alongside PetCo.

Acadian Village is where the old Perkins Road Walmart was located, near at the intersection of Perkins Road and Acadian Thruway.

Trader Joe's is a grocery store, similar to Whole Foods, and one of the few grocery stores in the area.

Keans Dry Cleaning is also planning a location there, as is an Italian-style cafe.

Two popular New Orleans restaurants already have locations there; Acme Oyster House and Galitories.
