New restaurant construction at Cabin John


What’s going up at Cabin John

Construction is really moving along now at the corner of Tuckerman Lane and Seven Locks Road in Potomac, where four new restaurants will open later this year. The fast-casual eateries — Shake ShackCAVA, Le Pain Quotidien and Sisters Thai — mark the beginning of a new era for the 50-year-old shopping center, soon to be known as Cabin John Village. Other new tenants include Georgetown Valet, which replaces the departed Fashion Flair dry cleaner, and the Sweetly Anchored bakery, which is on track to open next month. And since the Long & Foster real estate office departed for Park Potomac, we’ve been hearing some really interesting rumors about who’s moving into that space. As always, Store Reporter will be the first to let you know. In the meantime, click here to read up on Cabin John’s new restaurants.

Closed Brookstone store at Westfield Montgomery Mall


Bye Bye Brookstone

This week we say goodbye to Brookstone, the gadget store where most of us spent more time testing out the massage chairs than actually, you know, buying stuff. The struggling retailer, which has been shuttering stores across the country, has closed its doors at Westfield Montgomery Mall. The mall’s Solstice sunglass store is also on the way out, but competitor Specs New York is unexpectedly back in business after going dark for several weeks. So who’s actually moving in to Westfield Montgomery? Click here for the latest.

Sports Authority at Montrose Crossing


In and out at Montrose Crossing

Good news and bad news for the Montrose Crossing shopping center on Rockville Pike. Eater DC reports that Slapfish, a California-based chain of fast-casual seafood eateries, will be joining the new restaurant lineup. Meanwhile: Golf Galaxy, a division of Dick’s, has become the third sporting goods store to close its doors at Montrose Crossing in the past three years. Hudson Trail Outfitters went out of business in 2015, and Sports Authority (pictured here) went bankrupt the following year.

The end for Vince & Dominic’s

Bulldozers have been busy at the former Vince & Dominic’s space in the strip center across from Westfield Montgomery Mall. Unfortunately, nothing too exciting is in the works: Home Depot, which owns the whole property, tells us it’s demolishing several storefronts to make room for additional parking.
