Catoctin Corner open for business in Purcellville

Purcellville residents lined up over the weekend to experience the newest meeting spot in town. Dunkin' Donuts officially opened for business in the Catoctin Corner Shopping Center Jan. 6.

Owned by the brother-and-sister team Tilak and Trishna Patel, this is their second Dunkin' Donuts franchise after opening one in South Riding a few years ago.

Tilak Patel said so far Purcellville has been “very welcoming,” and he said it has been “nonstop business” since they opened.

They plan to reach out to the local schools and look forward to playing an active role in the community.

About 15 years ago, Purcellville had a Dunkin' Donuts in what is now the Shop-n-Save shopping center. Local residents seem glad to have one back in town.

"Such happy faces and good service at Dunkin' Donuts this morning!" posted local resident Meg Nash on Facebook.

Located off Rt. 287, across the street from the Purcellville Gateway Shopping Center and adjacent to Patrick Henry College, the Catoctin Corner center will consist of seven buildings once complete. It will be anchored by a 5,400-square-foot Shell gas station, which is expected to open in March.

Several other businesses are slated to open in the coming weeks – including Wink! Vision, Supercuts, and Catoctin Corner Dentistry. Chipotle Mexican Grill is slated to open in February, and Bank of Charles Town in May.

“Our goal is to complement the amenity base which already exists in Purcellville. I believe the new tenants do that and we are proud of these newcomers. We are still finalizing leases on more businesses as we speak,” said Dallon Cheney of KLNB Retail, which handles the leasing for the property.

Five storefronts are still available for lease, Cheney said, however, several leases are close to being signed.

Catoctin Corner is a six-acre parcel owned by Bill Holtzman, an oil and gas businessman whose daughter is state Sen. Jill Vogel (R) of Fauquier County.

The property was approved for mixed-use development in 2010 and will have over 40,000 square-feet of retail space when completed.


OMG westloudener, I just about choked laughing!  That was an instant classic with the current news.  Well done sir or madam.

Thank Heaven. The service at McDonald’s has been going downhill for some time now.

You guys are all missing the real news…Supercuts and Chipotle are opening there as well.  This couldn’t possibly get more exciting.

Patrick Henry is a wonderful school with great students. Dunkin Doughnuts was a waste of space though. In my opinion.

I don’t believe Dunkin’s will survive.  The Purcellville police force is not large enough to support it.

Patrick Henry a pretend college? No, I won’t call you a democrat. I’ll call you something that’s too expletive for this thread.

Sad that people are excited by the opening of yet another boring, monotonous strip shopping center. Purcellville, like Leesburg has lost their moral compass and have just become another cookie cutter town. It was a nice, unique town, and now it looks like it could be plopped down in Indiana, Colorado or Florida. Not one benefit from yet another slew of chain stores…shame on P’ville for following the crowd instead of leading it.

Call me a Democrat but between the fact that every dime spent there enriches Holtzman and the Vogels…and the eyesore was put there thanks to the pretend college (Patrick Henry), I’ll never buy a thing there!

If I open a business in Purcellville do I have to actually show up or can I stay home and be paid by the town council?
