Sprouts and Shutters: What Should Take the Place of the Giant on Centreville Road?

Giant Food Stores officials announced in September that the store at 8819 Centreville Road in Manassas would shutter on Nov. 1.

The Giant Food Store at 8819 Centreville Road near the intersection of Liberia Avenue in Manassas is slated t

So we ask, what should open in the vacant space? Another grocer, a skating rink, a restaurant?

Has anyone heard a rumor that they might move to replace Shoppers on Liberia?

WHOLE FOODS. Trader Joe's really isn't that great. But having a Whole Foods with a large organic section and one that works with the farmer's here in Virginia would be amazing. Could you imagine having something healthy, like a juice bar, or the incredible soups from Whole Foods in Manassas?! Or vegetarian options? I've bought stuff from Trader's that was straight up rancid. Although doesn't Whole Foods keep their number of stores low on purpose? If Whole Foods ever moved in it would be a massive increase in value to Manassas.

A Wegmans would be nice, but the space is too small. A Whole Foods would work maybe. The closest one is in Fairfax. It would be nice to have one so close. Trader Joe's would be good, though it is a larger space than most other locations. If the stores to right of the Giant closed there may be room to tear down and rebuild like Safeway has done with some of their locations.

I've heard from a reliable source that they are planning to tear it all down and build a Costco.
