The Trader Joe's on Veterans Memorial Blvd in Metairie, La., which opened in September 22, 2016.

Trader Joe's could be coming to New Orleans, a source close to the development disclosed last week. And that news had many fans of the California-based grocery store chain celebrating.

It would be the store's first location in the New Orleans city limits, but not the first in the metro area; the Metairie location has been open since 2016.

Trader Joe's is known for its smaller stores with a curated selection of unique products -- from snacks to frozen foods -- that are not available anywhere else. And those unique products are a big part of what the chain's fans love about it. 

The Times-Picayune | NOLA.com asked readers on social media to share what they like the most about Trader Joe's.

Few locations in Louisiana

With the addition of the New Orleans location, Louisiana's count of Trader Joe's locations is at three.

Times-Picayune readers called for more locations to be added in other parts of the state.

"We need one in north Louisiana 🙏🙏🙏🙏," jodi.b.thompson wrote on instagram.

The grocery store chain does allow for people to submit a request for a store in their city, but Trader Joe's warns that, "there are no guarantees, but being wanted matters to us."
