Never a dull moment on the grocery store beat in Glover Park!! The potential Trader Joe’s at the former Holiday Inn as been confirmed(ish) – from the Glover Park listserv:

“I just heard that the deal is confirmed for Trader Joe’s to locate in the new development at the site of the old Holiday Inn. I’m not sure exactly about the timing but it’s likely sometime in late 2018 or early 2019, given that the ground isn’t even broken yet.”

As for the Whole Foods closure, Whole Foods announced on the listserv:

“We announced today that we will be remodeling the Georgetown store to offer our customers a fresh, new shopping experience. Our goal is to exceed our customers’ expectations on every shopping trip, and making these investments in the store will help us to do that. We apologize for the inconvenience and welcome our customers to continue to shop with us at our nearby stores, including our brand new H Street location.”

“what is happening at Glover park whole foods!? Are we getting a beer mecca like H st??”

About a month ago the Glover Park Whole Foods briefly closed after being cited for food safety violations by the Department of Health. Other readers have reported the store has been closed since Monday. And as of this morning, Jamie updates us “still closed”

I’ve emailed Whole Foods for an update. Stay tuned.

Thanks to all who emailed the Washington Business Journal story “Trader Joe’s in talks to open in north Georgetown”.

Some commenters have been talking about this in the rant/revel and other posts so here’s a proper post for it. As to the North Georgetown/Glover Park name dispute? Why are you doing this to me God? Why?!?!? OK, sorry about that. Let’s officially start the clock for this Trader Joe’s watch.

Now keep in mind – the clock is still running for the Eastern Market and Union Market(ish) Trader Joe’s.

By the by – here’s how the Eastern Market (old Hine School) location is looking:

I love mysteries like this – for the past week or so I’ve been getting numerous tweets and emails from Adams Morgan, Woodley Park and now Glover Park asking:

“Wondering if anyone else heard the national anthem this morning. I walked out of my building (in Glover Park, a few buildings north of the Russian Embassy) at 8am, and distinctly heard the Star Spangled Banner. It wasn’t very quiet. Not sure if it was coming from the Russian embassy, but it sounded like it was coming from that direction.”

Has anyone else heard it (if so what neighborhood?) and have you been able to pinpoint the origin?
