Wednesday, Potomac Mills mall announced that two new standalone restaurants would be coming to the outlet mall.
A third restaurant has yet to be officially announced by mall management, but it has been reported that a Bahama Breeze would also open. The Cheesecake Factory and Bobby’s Burger Palace will start construction later this fall. A reader said he saw fences going up around the proposed location while waiting in a slug line Thursday morning.
Two additional stores, The Christmas Tree Shops and buybuy Baby will open in the mall.
In Fredericksburg, the same two shops have submitted plans to take up residence in a vacant Shoppers Food and Pharmacy building in Central Park.
Last February, the mall closed 750 parking spaces in anticipation of these developments at the mall. Sluggers and commuters said at several community meetings that they would boycott Potomac Mills because of the cut.
