Trader Joe's is now open!

PORTLAND, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Friday is a big day for Portland-area foodies, because Trader Joe's opens its doors.

We got a look inside today, as workers were busy stocking the shelves.

The store has been described as a cross between a traditional grocery store and a specialty food store -- often with more affordable prices.

It's located in the old Wild Oats building on Marginal Way.

People in the Portland area have been lobbying for the store. A Facebook page called "Bring Trader Joe's to Portland" attracted more than 4,000 members.

The grand opening is at 8:00 Friday morning. There will be live music, and giveaways to as part of the celebration.
