Amazon and Trader Joes logos on map of meridian and nampa

BoiseDev first broke the news that Trader Joe’s would open its second Idaho location in Meridian and it’s officially open! Trader Joe’s will take up a portion of the large former Rosaeurs store, located at 2986 N. Eagle Road, Meridian, ID 83646 and is keeping with its usual smaller footprint. The Meridian store measures 16,744 square feet according to permit records with the City of Meridian. That measures about 3,000 square feet larger than the Boise location and will offer a much better parking situation than the downtown location.

While Boise doesn’t have the most dog parks in the nation, it does lead the pack with the highest number of dog parks per capita: 6.7 dog parks per 100,000 residents, edging out the second-place cities of Portland, Oregon and Henderson, Nevada.

Boise City Council President Lauren McLean states, “Boise is awash in parks and trails for people, and I think dogs have it pretty good here in our fair city, too. As the

You probably aren’t surprised that the Boise River and greenbelt ranked #1 for the best place to impress out-of-towners, (with downtown Boise and attending a BSU football game as runners-up).
