It's really none of our business.
Welcome to today’s edition of Reston Mergers and Acquisitions. Of course, the AT&T Store and the T-Mobile Store will probably be moving in together to form what we can only assume will be called AT&T-Mobile. However, that's the sort of news any business reporter could give the community. We always strive to bring you business news that you can’t get anywhere else.
There is still no firm date on when the three component eateries will officially unite to form McTaco Hut under one roof. However, my corporate spies have sampled the Half-Pound Angus Bacon Cheese Gordita Italiano baked into a parmesan crust and served in a reusable shopping bag filled with marinara sauce and it is definitely going to back up traffic on Wiehle Avenue. Reston Hospital is adding three beds to the Cardiac Unit in honor of this portable feast.
Flying much further under the radar is the new Subway location at Reston National Golf Course. Personally, I worry that management has not thought hard enough about the name of the new eatery but I do wish Sub-Par Sandwiches the best of luck.
Unfortunately, Potbelly Sandwiches and Cigar Town will not be opening a joint location. Fairfax County officials were unwilling to issue a business license for Smoking Pot. Once again, there will be no joint location.
With the closing of Nine West, there had been talk of The Gap taking over the space to sell leather goods and belts to its youthful, vibrant consumer base. However, it now seems that another retailer will be taking over the spot and Teenage Waist Land will not be opening in that location this spring.
It is also with great disappointment that I must report that my previous enthusiasm about what I thought would be a pastry shop serving innovatively shaped treats was based on a misunderstanding. Apparently, the new business is a math-tutoring service. Can you blame me for getting confused about Pi R Squared?
I am also confirming that Reston Association did step in and prevent the opening of a medical practice at Tall Oaks Shopping Center. While tenants are sorely lacking at that location, the offices of a psychiatrist and his proctologist brother-in-law will not be filling the space. Apparently, RA disapproved of Odds and Ends.
However, I am proud to break this exciting news. Reston citizens will finally be able to stay here forever. Local leaders have come to an agreement on the name of the new cemetery but are still undecided on a location. Interested parties should send their inquiries to the management of Reston Peace Memorial Gardens.
