Our fourth (and largest!) Washington DC area store will be opening this Saturday, October 13th, in Merrifield, Virginia. Joining retailers such as Target, South Moon Under and Last Call Studio by Neiman Marcus, we are excited to be part of the exciting new Mosaic District retail and entertainment complex.
If you haven’t been to Merrifield in a while, you may be surprised to see the changes this corner of NoVA has undergone in the past few months. Long gone are the construction rentals, the car repair shop and the 1970’s multiplex theater. In their place is a very hip, urban development the likes of which Northern Virginia has not seen.
I’d venture to say the Mosaic District is in the same league as Reston Town Center when it comes to shopping and entertainment. A LEED Silver-certified Neighborhood Development Program, the Mosaic center features a unique urban design where similar retailers are grouped into “districts” making for easier shopping, dynamic nightlife and a thoughtful residential experience. Fashion, Markets, Film & Dining and Residential properties are purposefully located, making for an easy visit. Sidewalks are wide, parking is generous, walking distance to the Metro – what’s not to love?
Given all of this, it was an easy decision to open our second NoVa location here. Reston Town Center and Mosaic both offer my fellow suburban parents something that has been missing – a family-friendly place to stroll, shop, eat, live and simply relax. I’m excited that my store is part of this mix of retailers, especially given that we are a local chain, born right here in Washington DC.
The weekend weather looks to be sunny and in the 60’s — a perfect DC fall weekend. Put on a cozy sweater, dust off your boots and bring your family to our newest store at the Mosaic District. We’ll have balloon makers, an ice cream truck and enjoy 10% off your purchase on opening day (excludes strollers, gift cards and custom orders).
