Trader Joes Moving to Old Bethesda?

Heard on the grapevine that Trader Joes are considering a move to “Old” Bethesda – specifically looking at the space being developed across from Triangle Towers and the Gallery. If so, it would be a really smart move for them to make — all of the new buildings and the surrounding area would provide a strong customer base. It is also true that the current location is putting off some customers due to the challenges of accessing the store/ parking lot.

Target Coming to Bethesda

SO it seems that Target is going to open one of its urban style stores on the first floor of The Shops of Wisconsin Рbetter known as the Trader Joes complex.  While the Target will certainly provide some advantages to the community, it will also pose a challenge from a parking perspective. Things are already tough there and Target will increase the pressure for spaces. Now, it is true that the Bethesda shuttle runs to that spot Рperhaps there is a way to increase the number of shuttles running particularly during peak shopping times? The real estate space being secured by Target is approx 35,000 it seems. What do you think? Benefit? Problem?

 

Circulator Extended Route

Here at Bethesda Actually we are big fans of the next Circulator route Рby driving down Battery Lane the Circulator provides an easy transport option for those who live in buildings ranging from the Madison to the Whitehall to the soon to open residences at the corner of Battery and Woodmont. Additionally, the fact that the new route takes you to Trader Joes is also really terrific. Good thinking folks!DSCF4982
