Bloom Property Still Vacant a Year Later
New businesses have moved into Annandale since Bloom closed in January 2012, but none into that property.
According to Carol Zach-Reuss, manager of the Annandale Shopping Center, the property is still available for lease. Zach-Reuss said every effort is being made to find the right business to move into the space.
Zach-Reuss said the property has typically housed grocery stores. It was once an A&P and then a Magruder's. There was also a time when part of the property was a Dart Drug store and later a Rite Aid. The property was once two spaces, but the two properties were merged to accommodate a larger grocery store when Rite Aid left.
