We’re super-excited to be opening our new Rockville MOMs location tomorrow. After 16 years in our previous storefront on Parklawn Drive, we’ve realized we need more parking and a more navigable layout for our tried and true (and patient) Rockville customers.
The work going into setting up our new store has been extensive, and invigorating! We’ve been delighted to taste-test all the new, fresh & healthy recipes that will be served at our Naked Lunch counter in the new store (hours 11am-8pm daily). Salads! Sandwiches! Muffins! Steaming whole grain bowls with veggies! Black bean burgers! Fresh-pressed veggie juices! They’ve all been delicious and refreshing.
We’ll have our newly expanded Wellness department, a huge new selection of bulk foods including bulk oils and sweeteners, and grind-your-own peanut butter, a gorgeous fresh Produce department with all the bells and whistles, a great selection of sustainable pet toys, COLD local beer, and even… wait for it… Kombucha on tap! Yes, really.
Exciting additions in the new store include, but are not limited to: huge wide aisles, our all-LED lighting, skylights, solatubes, an extensive recycling center, low VOC paint colors, 2 electric car-charging stations, Dyson Airblade hand dryers, a bike rack, and tons of renewable building materials… and as always we’re more than 100% wind-powered by way of local distributor Clean Currents, we offset our customers’ travel to and from our stores with TerraPass, and use only compostable utensils.
For our employees, we offer a vastly improved office area, including skylights for natural light during the day, beautiful low VOC paint colors throughout, clean refurbished office furniture, ergonomic standing desks, an expanded kitchen area for making fresh lunches and snacks, and comfortable adjustable chairs (every once in a while we do sit down).
Please join us for our grand opening weekend which starts Thursday May 3rd. We’ll have goody bags, local product sampling, and cool kid’s activities like seed-planting. We’d love to see all our loyal Rockville customers and some new ones, too!
New location: 5566 Randolph Road, Rockville, MD 20852 *just a few blocks from our old location: take Nicholson to Nebel and we’ll be on the left before you reach Randolph Rd.
