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.”
