Amazon has been shutting down some of the Amazon Fresh grocery stores, raising questions about the future of the planned Potomac Yard and Baily’s Crossroads store, Alexandria Living Magazine first reported.

Amazon said in a fourth-quarter earnings call last week that some Fresh supermarkets will be closed and that future expansion plans are on pause.

The Amazon Fresh store in Potomac Yard was first announced in 2021 to replace the Shoppers supermarket and would be located adjacent to the Virginia Tech Innovation Campus — about a mile and a half away from the new HQ2 development in Arlington.
