PORTLAND, Ore. -- Portland Mayor Charlie Hales says Trader Joe's will not be coming to a northeast Portland neighborhood.
Trader Joe's pulled out of a proposed location in February after some members of the community complained about gentrification.
Hales tried to get the grocery chain to reconsider, but a company official has told him the decision won't be reversed.
The mayor said Tuesday he's confident that a similar project will eventually rise on the corner of Northeast Alberta Street and Northeast Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard.
