The long-rumored Trader Joe's location in Northern Kentucky finally has a confirmed opening date.

The cult-favorite grocer will open in Crestview Hills Town Center at 8 a.m. July 16 in the former Joseph-Beth Booksellers space.

The 13,400-square-foot grocer will offer everything from Everything But the Bagel seasoning, olive oil popcorn and wine, plus booze. According to a release from Trader Joe's, this will  "mark the first time Cincinnati-area customers have convenient access to a Trader Joe’s that sells liquor." 

This Trader Joe's also will be personalized with artwork representing area icons like the Roebling Suspension Bridge, Newport Aquarium and the Florence Water Tower.

There will be a ribbon cutting before the grocer opens its doors along with live music throughout the day. 

Store hours will be 8 a.m.-9 p.m. daily, with alcohol sales 8 a.m.-9 p.m. Monday-Saturday and 1-9 p.m. Sunday.

This will be the second Trader Joe's location in Greater Cincinnati, with the other being in Kenwood. And thanks goodness, because that Kenwood one gets seriously crowded on the weekends.

Trader Joe's Crestview Hills is located at 2785 Dixie Highway, Crestview Hills.
