Trader Joe’s on tap for One Loudoun?

Trader Joe's appears to be coming to Loudoun – One Loudoun, more specifically.

The popular grocery chain is working to finalize plans to move into the Ashburn space formerly occupied by The Fresh Market, according to building permits first reported by The Burn.

But officials with One Loudoun and Trader Joe's continue to hold off on any major announcements.

Phone calls to the Trader Joe's corporate office were not returned Monday.

Tim O'Connell, an assistant vice president with Retail Properties of America, Inc., which manages leasing at One Loudoun, said, “We cannot provide any comment on the Trader Joe’s building permit.”

Headquartered in California, Trader Joe's has 474 locations nationwide, including stores in Reston and Tysons Corner.

Local residents have long called for a Trader Joe's in Loudoun, including with a Facebook page called “Bring Trader Joe's to Ashburn, VA,” which has 1,900 members.

The Fresh Market closed in spring 2017.

John,

Just check it out once.  Love Wegs as well, but TJ’s is truly a unique place.


I really hope Leesburg is next.  Wegmans is the only real option for healthier choices here.  I really want an Aldi too.


I don’t really care, not much of a grocery store guy, and Wegman’s is fine with me, but I’d like to say to Debbie that Publix appears to be coming. They are opening or have opened a store in Richmond, so they are likely headed our way. Giant, Lotte, Aldi, Lidl, Wegman’s, Trader Joe’s, etc. how many more do we need?


WooHoo! Finally! When I moved to Ashburn from Herndon, the number one thing I missed was Trader Joe’s! I have been making the long drive back to Herndon after work every 2-4 weeks for 18 years. So happy it will only be 5 minutes away now!!


Like it, TJ’s is a quality run organization with a solid business model.  This is capitalism at work.  Unlike Fresh Market, TJ’s provides great customer service, great food, and a great price.  I am excited and would speculate it will thrive in that location.


Awesome Sauce!!!  Trying to find parking at their Reston store is a nightmare.


Not in the grocery store biz, but-

It is a great news.

Trader Joes #1 low cost organic store in the nation.  Customer service national ranking is on par with Wegmans.  The only other is Publix, which is not offered in VA.  All other grocery stores noticeably below.  Millenials especially love Trader Joes.  Keep in mind that “organic” is a loose term.  Such as, just being labeled organic does not necessarily mean the food has not been in contact with pesticides (unless specifically stated). Bottom line, it is a big win for folks near Ashburn.


Great.
