It looks like the entire inventory is on the sidewalk outside in front of the store. Man, what kind of damage was done this weekend? The boxes have nearly taken over the entire sidewalk, with a very narrow path for people to walk by.

Does anyone have photos of this carnage? Is Trader Joe's restocking after a bang-up weekend or are they making sure there are boxes outside to house customers waiting on line in the cold?

Did you brave the crowds and head to Trader's Joe this weekend? How was it? And Gothamist on opening day morning.
