Visions for Vacancies: Bottom Dollar Food

What would you like to see in this vacant storefront on Route 1?

This storefront previously occupied by Bottom Dollar Food is located in the Woodlawn shopping center at 8750 Richmond Highway.

The large retail space is located across the street from the Cooper Square shopping center. The Woodlawn shopping center also includes a , , and a . 

Bottom Dollar closed earlier this year as part of Delhaize America's decision to close six underperforming Bottom Dollar locations. There are no plans for the vacant storefront at this time as Delhaize America still has seven years left on the lease, said David Versel, Executive Director of the Southeast Fairfax Development Corporation.

Delhaize America runs several grocery store chains in North America, including Food Lion, Bloom and Sweetbay Supermarkets.

So, what would you like to see occupy this storefront? Is there a type of business you think our community needs?

Agree! A GAR restaurant would be fantastic in this area.

I agree with Whole Foods, or Trader Joe's would be very nice. It would bring more business to the area. Better grocery stores are needed in that area!

A few weeks ago I heard a rumor that Harris Teeter will be taking over the former Bottom Dollar space. So far I haven't been able to confirm this.
