Del Ray’s Giant Food Closing September 2 in Alexandria

Giant Food on Monroe Ave in the Del Ray neighborhood of Alexandria, Virginia
As we have told you, the Notch 8 apartments have been under construction in the Potomac Yard neighborhood of Alexandria, Virginia. As readers know, with that construction, located at E Glebe Road & Route 1, will come a 68,000 square-foot brand new Giant Food store (see below).

This has been in the works since before construction began on the new space at Notch 8 in January 2014. As readers also know, the Giant Food in Old Town North closed recently and the lease for the Giant Food in Del Ray was up on January 31, 2016. We told you it was confirmed closing earlier this year.

Sources tell me that the Del Ray Giant on Monroe Avenue will close on September 2, 2015 and the new Giant Food in Potomac Yard will open September 3. I am told many, if not all of the store’s team members will be at the new store.

The Giant Food at Notch 8 will take up the first floor of the development, with two-and-a-half levels of underground parking for residents and retail customers. We hear the new store will include a Starbucks, bakery, pharmacy and an outdoor cafe.

As we have also told you, an ALDI Food Market, one of three (3) moving into Alexandria, is taking over the old Giant Food spot on Monroe Avenue.

The new ALDI will be open from 9:00 AM – 9:00 PM Monday – Friday, 9:00 AM – 8:00 AM Saturdays, and 9:00 AM – 7:00 PM Sundays.

It is unclear at this time if Giant will hold onto the space until their lease runs out in January. We have reached out to them as well as ALDI for comment so we can inform Del Ray residents when to expect construction on the new store.
