ROCKVILLE, Md., May 27 /PRNewswire/ — MOM’s Organic Market, the Washington/Baltimore metro area’s homegrown organic grocery chain and the only local provider offering only 100% organic produce, will be opening a store in the newly developed Mosaic District in Merrifield/Falls Church, VA. This location is scheduled to open spring 2012, at the intersection of Lee Highway and Gallows Road.
The Mosaic District is a LEED Pilot Project created by the U.S. Green Building Council. Sustainability of site, a 20,000 square foot green roof, water efficiency, and indoor environmental quality are just a few aspects that will be accounted for when building.
“With 5 stores in Maryland and only 1 in Virginia, this store is overdue for us. We picked Merrifield for its easy accessibility to so many NoVa communities. This lease signing also signifies a new phase of increased growth for MOM’s,” said Scott Nash, the founder and CEO of MOM’s. The company plans to open 5-6 additional stores by the end of 2012.
In addition to 100% organic produce, the new store will provide area residents with a large variety of organic and unique grocery and dairy items, bulk foods, gourmet cheeses, local and organic meats, sustainable seafood, gluten-free foods, supplements and body care products, environmentally friendly household goods, and holistic pet products.
Founded in 1987 in Scott Nash’s mother’s garage as a home delivery/mail order provider of organic foods, MOM’s has grown to become the region’s premiere chain of locally owned and operated environmental organic grocery stores, offering an incredible selection of organic products at everyday low prices. MOM’s currently operates 6 stores in the Washington/Baltimore area including: Rockville, MD, College Park, MD, Alexandria, VA, Columbia East, MD, Frederick, MD, and Bowie, MD.
