Just days after we learned of the demise of Fresh World in the Tall Oaks
Fresh World at Tall Oaks in Reston has closed its doors and in a few weeks Compare Foods Supermarket from New York will open in its place. The retailer describes itself as an American supermarket with international flair. Compare Foods will begin moving in on Sept. 16 and will open within 45 days.This will be Compare's first Virginia supermarket. While Fresh World had a large selection of Asian and Middle Eastern foods, Compare Supermarkets leans more towards Latino foodstuffs. Guess we'll have to head to Lake Anne with our electrified fishin' spear if we get a hankerin' for some fresh eel.
And hey, a rare shout out to the fine folks at the Observer for putting this news on the Twitters days before their print edition hits the streets.
