Tysons, VA

Peet’s Coffee has left Tysons Station, along with closing its spot in the Town of Vienna.

A Peet’s spokesperson told Tysons Reporter this week that both locations have permanently closed.

When Tysons Reporter previously asked about the Vienna location, the spokesperson did not respond to questions about when or why it closed.

Fans of the coffee chain can still order drinks on the mobile app from the Tysons location (8150 Leesburg Pike).

Pike 7 Plaza in Tysons and Idylwood Plaza and Tysons Station in the Falls Church area will soon have a contact-less pick-up program for their restaurants.

Federal Realty’s Pick-Up program launches next Friday, May 15 in the D.C. area, to allow curbside pick-up for eateries at its properties, according to a press release from Mittie Rooney at the Axiom Communications Group.

“The program is made available to all tenants and customers looking for comfortable ways to return to shopping at their favorite stores,” the press release said. “Customers will be able to place orders directly with stores by phone or on-line, and arrange for same day pick-up, or a time most convenient to them.”

Federal Realty’s three shopping centers in the Tysons area will have the program by the end of the month, Rooney  said.

“We see this as a long-term solution to finding even more convenient ways for customers to shop,” Stuart Biel, the senior vice president of regional leasing for Federal Realty, said in the press release.

Updated 3/17/2020 — Adds information from Federal Realty Investment Trust.

Tysons Cakes is no longer open along Leesburg Pike in the Tysons Station shopping center.

While Yelp says that the bakery is set to reopen on April 24, Emily Gagliardi with Federal Realty Investment Trust told Tysons Reporter that the bakery will not reopen.

Gagliardi said that the bakery’s closure at 7500 Leesburg Pike a few months ago was unrelated to the coronavirus.

“Orange Theory Fitness will be using this space for their pre-sales area, as they are under construction across the street, and we have a permanent deal pending on this space following that,” she said.

The bakery used to make colorful cakes and still has photos from last year of cakes with unicorns, “Sesame Street” characters and even a wedding cake with Pikachus on its Facebook page.

People who stop by Ledo Pizza in Tysons Station next week can help raise money for Freedom Hill Elementary School.

The upcoming fundraiser is a part of the parent-teacher association’s plans to raise at least $10,000 in donations this year.

A member of the school’s PTA told Tysons Reporter that the “family dinner out” at Ledo Pizza will be next Tuesday-Wednesday (March 10-11) at 7510 Leesburg Pike. The restaurant will donate part of the money from the two nights to the PTA.

The school’s PTA is also hosting a read-a-thon through tomorrow (March 6) to encourage students to read. The PTA is seeking donations.

More from the event page:

This year, Read-a-thon’s proceeds will go towards classroom libraries, school reading materials, and to help replace aging projectors.

This year we hope to beat last year’s reading totals (202,000 minutes read), and exceed our fundraising goal of $10,000. If we reach our fundraising goal, Asst. Principal Kopacz will get a pie in the face and Principal Zapadka will be duct-taped to the wall!!

Trader Joe’s has a planned expansion in the works at Tysons Station.

Building permits at the vacant space next to Peet’s indicate that the grocery store (7514 Leesburg Pike) plans to demolish the interior and turn it into a commercial use.

Federal Realty, the real estate investment trust behind the shopping center, shows the space already incorporated into Trader Joe’s — totaling 15,286 square feet for the grocery store — on its brochures.

Other changes are also happening at the shopping center.

The space that used to house Tysons Cakes (7500 Leesburg Pike, Suite 12B) is listed as available for rent on the brochure.
