MOM’s Organic Market in College Park will triple in size, adding a cafe, bakery and even a pinball room in the space formerly occupied by REI in the Hollywood Shopping Center.
In recent years, MOM’s has seen an increase in local competition with the new addition of Whole Foods at Riverdale Park Station, an upscale Safeway at University Town Center, a Yes! Organic Market at Arts District Hyattsville and even an upcoming Lidl in College Park. And developers working on a new project in College Park are also looking to add a Trader Joe’s-type grocery store.
According to the Diamondback, once completed, the expansion of MOM’s will be about 27,500 square feet, more than three times the current 8,000 square feet and larger even than the typical 15,000 square feet for its other locations.
The newly expanded College Park MOM’s will include Naked Lunch, an organic, vegetarian-oriented cafe popular at other locations; a Witches’ Brew Cafe with a focus on tea; an organic bakery and a special area with some of CEO Scott Nash’s personal collection of pinball machines.
