Mount Vernon Square provides retail update
Renovations have begun at the former Safeway site at Mount Vernon Square, and the projected opening date for the new Fresh World supermarket is mid- to late summer 2024, according to Joshua Kim, a property management representative for Mt. Vernon Square LLC, which purchased the shopping center last June.
Kim said his team is in talks with several potential clients to fill two other vacant slots at the center — a former dry-cleaning business and a one-time Cricket Wireless store located next to United Nails nail salon. A Korean restaurant will be moving into one of those vacant spaces, he said.
Mount Vernon Square is located at 7451-7475 Richmond Highway.
