🚨 You need to know

The plans for new Amazon Fresh grocery stores around Alexandria may have expired.

After months of uncertainty, Alexandria Living Magazine reported that the plans for Amazon Fresh locations in Potomac Yard and Bailey’s Crossroads are no more.

Amazon Fresh was announced in 2021 as a replacement to the Potomac Yard Shoppers at 3801 Richmond Highway. The Potomac Yard location was almost fully complete when the company started rolling back the budding grocery store chain.

While it’s not known yet what will happen to the Potomac Yard location, Alexandria Living Magazine said the Bailey’s Crossroads one at 5821 Crossroads will be converted into a Golf Galaxy, meaning Alexandrians won’t have to drive far to get their golfing gear.

Golf Galaxy is a golfing chain with clubs and other equipment, along with indoor driving ranges, lessons and more.
