apparently the large construction equipment i saw playing around in the lot next to the giant in brentwood last week were preparing for a groundbreaking today.
54,000 square feet of retail is to be added between giant and the rhode island avenue metro.
The new retailers include: AJ Wright, Downtown Locker Room, Rainbow Women Clothing, Footlocker, Anna's Linens, America's Best Optical, Radio Shack and Citi-bank.
There will be a press conference/photo op with Vincent Orange, but you could have guessed that.
While i'm not sure if i will be hitting up on any of these stores i do hope the citi-bank diffuses the ridiculous overcrowding at bank of america. while im thinking about, why did they not put a drive through teller window instead of a drive up atm???? you almost always have to get out of your car and walk to the OTHER ATM to get deposit envelopes anyway.
one more thing, why no bookstore up at the brentwood shopping center. or a gym? or a office supply store, or........
