Trader Joe's is planning a fourth Colorado location — this one at the southern edge of the Capitol Hill neighborhood across from Governor's Park.

The grocery store known for a product line that spans the ordinary to the exotic closed on the lease for the latest of its locations — all are planned to open by the end of 2014 — which will be about 11,600 square feet at the southwest corner of East Seventh Avenue and Logan Street.

The California-based specialty grocery chain is expected to have two stores in Denver, one in Greenwood Village and another in Boulder operating by the end of next year, Trader Joe's spokeswoman Alison Mochizuki said Monday.

The Boulder and first Denver stores are new construction. The others are leases.

Trader Joe's began in Los Angeles in 1958 and today boasts nearly 400 locations in 35 states.
