You left off Charming Charlie which was on your last list and is still on the sign.
Lauren Jost June 08, 2012 at 03:25 PM
Yep, you're right. I've also added Starbucks and Potbelly to this list.

Not official yet, but there have been high level discussions to get an Apple store there. Not sure where that stands at this point, but that would be great. And with Potomac Mills getting Cheesecake Factory, I'd love to see Rainforest Cafe go in here.

An Apple store would be great. No more having to drive to Fairfax for Apple products! Some people have talked about wanting a Great America Restaurant (Coastal Flats, Sweetwater Tavern, etc.) there or a Trader Joe's.

This is great news. This project is almost fully leased. Hopefully the remaining available sites would be grand slams. Thanks Lauren.
Lauren Jost June 08, 2012 at 04:34 PM
Thank you, Kev C., for the initial tip!

What happened to DSW? I would love for one of the Great American restaurants to come, and Trader Joe's!! Is there a petition or any way to request these? Thanks, Lauren! Go Lancers!
Lauren Jost June 08, 2012 at 05:06 PM
Hey Cris, DSW is on the list above! There's no "petition." The development company, Roadside Development, is the one who is negotiating leases with the companies.
Cris Sparks-Early June 08, 2012 at 05:09 PM
I saw the DSW as soon as I hit "submit"....sorry!! I agree with Kevin, then, let's hope the remaining spaces are winning stores and restaurants! Thanks for the updates!

yes Rain Forest Cafe! great idea!
Terri Benton June 22, 2012 at 12:59 PM
It would be wonderful to have Trader Joes but Wegmans might object although for me I would shop at both as Trader Joes is unique.
Debbie July 19, 2012 at 02:28 PM
How about Pottery Barn or Restoration Hardware! Also would love one of the Great American Restaurants!!!!
Pattie Marshall August 08, 2012 at 07:12 PM
I may have written ths before not sure but a Container Store would be great! Any plans to bring a Container Store here?
Lauren Jost August 08, 2012 at 07:58 PM
Hi Pattie! I remember seeing your comment on another one of these articles about Potomac Town Center. I don't believe there are plans to bring one immediately to PTC. It would be an organizer's dream, though!

I would LOVE to see a Cosi go in there but not sure how likely that is...

What happen to Charming Charlie's opening at the PTC mall ????
Jim Riley April 09, 2013 at 06:29 PM
It has been open for months.
