Office supplies are out, and cheaply priced groceries are in at Tysons’ Pike 7 Plaza.
The German grocery store chain Lidl has signed a lease for space in the shopping center at 8305 Leesburg Pike, spokesperson Chandler Spivey confirmed to FFXnow.
“We are looking forward to bringing our high quality, fresh assortment, low prices and simple shopping experience to customers in the area,” Spivey said, adding that it’s too soon to project a timeline for the new store.
According to a site plan from Federal Realty Investment Trust, the company that owns the plaza, Lidl will take over the nearly 24,000-square-foot suite that had been filled by Staples for more than a decade.
Staples didn’t immediately return a request for comment, but its store locator lists the site as closed. An employee at the chain’s Falls Church store confirmed that the Tysons location has permanently closed, saying that workers started moving merchandise out and transferring it to other stores in late April.
Lidl has been making a strong push to bolster its presence in Fairfax County in recent years, with stores in McLean, Lorton, and Chantilly slated to join existing franchises in Merrifield, Fairfax, Lincolnia, Burke, and Springfield.
“We’re excited to continue our expansion in Northern Virginia,” Spivey said.
Federal Realty said in a statement that it’s “thrilled” to welcome Lidl, suggesting the grocer could arrive at Pike 7 Plaza “later this year.”
“Adding a specialty grocer recognized for providing high-quality products at competitive prices including European pastries, local produce and imported cheeses is a wonderful addition to the shopping center and benefit for the community,” said Deirdre Johnson, senior vice president of asset management for Federal Realty.
After adding Ulta Beauty on April 1, the shopping center is still awaiting the restaurants Grill Kabob and Ingle Korean Steakhouse, according to “coming soon” signs posted to the storefronts.
