I heard a rumor (in the hair salon on Saturday so you know it must be true) that a new Trader Joe's was going to be opening in the Giant Food location in the Yorktown Shopping Center on Gallows Road in Merrified. Giant was going to relocate as a Giant Gourmet in a newly rebuilt location in Loehman's Plaza in Falls Church--occupying a space freed up after Loehmans clothing store moves down to where Linens and Things was before it closed. (What is this? Musical chairs?) Can anyone conform any of this?
My first impression was that both parking lots are undersized for this kind of traffic, and getting in and out of Yorktown shopping center is already challenging enough.
