Dawson's Market Construction To Be Completed In 'Summer'
The new Town Square grocery isn't providing a specific timetable for its opening.
A new grocery store in Rockville Town Square may be opening a few months later than originally planned but “the wait will be worth it,” a spokeswoman for the store said.
“Most importantly, we are concerned with taking the time necessary to make sure the store perfectly suits the needs and wants of the customers,” Becky Lakin, the recently named marketing director for Dawson’s Market, wrote in an email response to a question about the opening date. “We will be starting construction in a few weeks and are aiming to have construction completed this Summer.”
The store isn’t being any more specific than that.
After signing a lease for Town Square in September, Dawson’s Market owner Rick Hood said he expected a March or April opening date. Federal Realty Investment Trust, which owns and operates the retail and residential district in Rockville Town Center, confirmed a spring opening at that time.
A news release from Federal Realty last month announced four new restaurants for Town Square and stated, in the last paragraph, that the store’s opening would not be until summer.
“We'll then move into training our employees, moving in inventory and all the while, sourcing and securing product with our local vendors and farmers,” Lakin wrote. “We are eager to open and appreciate the patience of the Rockville community. The wait will be worth it; we're taking the time and steps to ensure that's the case.”
