In our ever-vigilant vigilance of what is happening at the ol’ Park n’ Shop in Connecticut, D.C., City Desk has learned that Potomac River Running is moving into the former Whatsa Bagel spot, with a possible opening in October. This news comes by way of Josh Hart, elected in June to the ANC 3C04. Hart says the store that’s owned by Northern Virginia runners-entrepreneurs has signed a lease at 3513 Connectictut Ave. NW for its first District outpost. The other stores are in Arlington (Ballston), Burke, Reston, and Ashburn. Want to hear what Fenty ‘rents Phil and Jan have to say about another local-owned shop opening near their customer base? Too bad. An employee over there says they’re on vacay. No call back, either, from one of the Potomac River Running owners, Cathy Pugsley. But keep it dialed in right here for all your struggling stripmall news.
