Dollar Tree to Fill Rite Aid Vacancy on Maple Avenue

There’s activity in the shuttered Rite Aid at 215 Maple Ave. in Vienna as workers transform the former pharmacy space into a Dollar Tree.

Dollar Tree is a discount store that has been thriving and expanding despite e-commerce outlets like Amazon devastating other retail chains. When the new Vienna store will open is unclear, but today workers were busy renovating the building’s interior.

A pair of folders were taped to the front door for those seeking employment to pick up and drop off applications.

The new store will fill a vacancy at an end of Maple Avenue badly in need of more commercial activity. A few feet west of the new Dollar Tree is the charred husk of the Marco Polo restaurant, which was destroyed in a fire last month, and the A.J.’s Sports Stop, which is likely to be closed within a year.

There are other signs of new life and development at the west end of Maple Avenue. Just two blocks away is the Wolf Trap Hotel, which earlier this week was authorized by the Vienna Town Council to be converted into a new four-story mixed-use development.
