We’re so excited to announce that the long awaited Lidl will be joining us in our very own Skyland Town Center this Wednesday, 9/28! As a resident of Crest, we look forward to having you join us for the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony and store preview on Tuesday, as well as the Grand Opening Event on Wednesday! Please read below for more information on the Grand Opening Event, and click here to see what else we have just steps away from The Crest!


Grand Opening Event Details 

At the grand opening celebrations on September 28, customers will be able to take advantage of get-them-while-you-can grand opening special offers at the new store. The first 100 customers in line before the store opening at 8:00 a.m. will be presented with a special gift card ranging from $5 to $100 each. Shoppers can enter to win a $500 Lidl gift card, sample Lidl’s award-winning assortment, and take advantage of special giveaways.  

Lidl is proud to partner with the Capital Area Food Bank to provide food to community members in need. Throughout the entire grand opening weekend, Wednesday-Sunday, Lidl will donate $1 to the food bank for every new myLidl member who signs up and sets Lidl Skyland as their home store. 

Store Features  

Lidl has been repeatedly recognized for its shopping experience. For the second consecutive time, Food & Wine Magazine recently ranked Lidl among its Top 10 U.S. Supermarket rankings – ahead of retailers like Trader Joe’s and Costco. A study from UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School observed that prices on Lidl’s award-winning assortment were up to 45 percent lower than nearby national grocers. 

When entering the Skyland store, shoppers can expect to experience the following:

New Openings at Skyland Town Center

A new year is bringing many new, exciting events to Skyland Town Center!

On January 8 we welcomed DC Mayor Bowser, and city and community leaders to the groundbreaking of the Lidl grocery store. Lidl, recently ranked a top 3 U.S. grocer by USA Today 10 Best Readers’ Choice Awards, will be the first full-service supermarket serving residents in Wards 7 and 8 to open in more than a decade.

Lidl offers an award-winning assortment of fresh, high-quality products including produce, a fresh bakery, beef poultry, and fish, as well as a wide array of non-food household products that drop in stores on a weekly basis.

The supermarket anticipates opening in the fall of 2022.

Very soon residents of The Crest and our neighbors will be able to get their caffeine fix at the Skyland Town Center Starbucks, which is expected to open in early February. It will be the first drive-through Starbucks in Washington, DC.

Folks craving a hot chicken sandwich will soon be getting their wish, as we look forward to the winter opening of Roaming Rooster. The DC-based restaurant, which started as a food truck, has a well-deserved reputation for its chicken options and, now, breakfast biscuits.

And if looking good is on your list of resolutions, Like That barbershop will soon be your stop for getting that stylish cut. The barbershop has been serving families east of the Anacostia River for more than 30 years, and is making a short trip across Good Hope Road to reopen at Skyland, anticipated by early February.

There’s much more to come this year at Skyland Town Center – so watch this space to keep track of new announcements.
