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.
