GLOUCESTER –Three new businesses are headed to Gloucester County and will soon occupy space in a small shopping center that is currently under construction on George Washington Memorial Highway.
Chipotle Mexican Grill, T-Mobile, and Aspen Dental will be the tenants in the new shopping complex, which is currently being built between a McDonald’s and a Wendy’s in the central part of Gloucester County. It will be the first Gloucester location for all three businesses.
Sally Evans, a communications representative with Chipotle, said the new location will feature a Chipotlane, which is the company’s digital order drive-thru service. While it will be the first Chipotle in the county, the company has locations in Hampton, Newport News, and Williamsburg. Evans expects the restaurant to open in the fall, but doesn’t have an exact date.
The Aspen Dental facility will occupy about half the space of the 9,000-square foot shopping center, which is at 7115 George Washington Memorial Highway. Its other area locations are in Hampton and Newport News.
Meanwhile, in addition to its new location in Gloucester, T-Mobile’s website lists two locations in Hampton, five in Newport News, and two in Williamsburg.
Sherry Spring, Gloucester’s economic development director, doesn’t have a timetable for the new shopping center’s opening.
“They hope to get it going as fast as they possibly can,” she said. “It’s been a long time in the making.”
