Original Post: 

Fans of Potomac Town Center will be interested to know that during the regular Board of County Supervisors meeting tomorrow the board will hear a presentation on the retail expansion.

In recent months, opened next to Uncle Julio's restaurant and Gymboree. opened a second location at Stonebridge, as well.  and are among retailers slated to join the shopping center. Despite that had pulled out of the development, the popular Chinese restaurant has plans to draw up a lease soon.

Check back with Woodbridge Patch Tuesday for more details on the retail expansion.

Hi Jan, Yes of course. I've been keeping tabs on everything. The company has not released dates yet. But, once I get my hands on info I'll post it.

Agree about Old Navy and Caribou Coffee. Also would be nice to add a Golden Corral restaurant. Closest one now is in Manassas.

Lauren, Old Navy at Potomac Mills is not an outlet. It is a full line store. Old Navy no longer operates any outlets. I agree that it's A: too close to the store in Potomac Mills less than 1 mile away, and B: it's too out of line with the other stores coming to the town center. Unless the Old Navy store is leaving Potomac Mills the new store will fail misearably as PTC won't have the foot traffic that the mall has and shoppers going to PTC want better quality stores. Banana Republic which is a sister store to Old Navy has an outlet at the mall and a full line store at PTC would have been a much better choice.

PWC is the 14th wealthiest county in the country. Given similiar demographics for Stafford and the big money found in Fairfax Station/Lorton (within 15 min to PTC) The population and income levels should support a center such as PTC. My bigger concern is the mix of shops. If you're going to have a pull you need to have a mix of stores catering to a target group of higer end professionals. dry cleaners, nail salons, and old navy aren't the types of stores that will pull the people they want. Losing The Cheesecake Factory to Potomac Mills was a BIG miss. That should have been in the PTC without doubt.

Hi Greg, Thanks for your comment! I just double checked with Potomac Mills, and the Old Navy that's in there is an outlet. As far as I know, there are no plans for the outlet to leave the mall. So, we'll be having two Old Navy stores less than two miles apart. There will be a White House Black Market, Coldwater Creek, Chico's and other full retail stores when the center fully opens.
