Smoothie business closes at Belvoir Square
Smoothie King, a nutrition-focused beverage franchise, shuttered its Belvoir Square location just outside the Fort Belvoir garrison in early December. The store first opened there in late 2019.
A sign on the door of the establishment expresses thanks to loyal customers and says it was a hard decision to close Dec. 1.
“We are not giving up; we are simply changing,” reads the sign. “The restaurant industry has seen so many changes since 2020 and so have we.”
Smoothie King’s next nearest Northern Virgina locations are in Arlington at Pentagon Row Shopping Center and in Woodbridge at Merchant Plaza.
Two other retail spaces at Belvoir Square are currently available, according to KLNB’s site plan. The future tenant of the building’s largest retail unit — listed as Gentle Dental Care — appears to be building out its space currently.
The Belvoir Square mixed-use development, located across from Fort Belvoir’s Tulley Gate, has 282 luxury apartment units directly above the retail spaces. The building is located at 9142 Richmond Highway.
