Five Below is now open on the top level of Westfield Wheaton Mall at 11160 Veirs Mill Rd. The discount chain plans to add to open 200 new stores in 2023, bringing its total to over 1,500, according to Bisnow. Five Below has additional MoCo locations in Gaithersburg (Gaithersburg Square and Kentlands), Germantown, Rockville, and Silver Spring.
In other Wheaton Mall news, last week we reported that Moe’s Southwest Grill had closed its location in the food court. The restaurant opened in 2019.
Back in July we let you know that Dollar Tree is coming to 2321 University Blvd W in Wheaton, the former site of CVS (next to Max’s, which closed in July). CVS closed this location back in December 2019. Neighboring businesses let us know that the opening is likely coming very soon and a peek inside shows that construction is nearly complete with the store currently looking like it only needs to be stocked before being ready to open.
