Friday News 'N Notes

- Our POS transit center won't open until next summer (at best?).

- Pedro Matamoros, formerly of 8407 and Nicaro (the original one) has been named executive chef of The Golden Flame. It will be interesting to see if he can re-invigorate this old school Silver Spring restaurant.

- Has anyone heard anything regarding the fate of the Caribou Coffee on East-West Hwy? The parent company has announced that they are closing 88 stores nationwide, and another 88 are being converted to Peet's Coffee and Tea, including stores in Maryland that survive the initial purge.

UPDATE: It's becoming a Peet's, but not for awhile.

- I so want to believe that this review of City Place is actually brilliant satire.

- The Falkland Chase apartment complex has been sold to the JBG Companies. Can we have our Harris Teeter now? That whole Falkland redevelopment has entered the pantheon of Eternal Silver Spring Projects, taking its rightful place alongside the Purple Line, the library and the Transit Center (among others).

- Stellar transit center concrete-pourers Faccina Construction is in the running for work building the Silver Line. Good luck with that, Virginia.

That City Place blurb immediately reminded me of this: http://dish.andrewsullivan.com/2013/04/03/the-saddest-mall-in-the-world-2/

However, since its opening, the mall has no more than a few dozen, mostly small tenants at any single time. Over 99% of the retail space has been vacant and will probably remain so. As a result of its disappointing performance, the planned luxurious Shangri-La hotel was never built; nor were some of the supporting facilities. Yet, given the magnitude of the project, the mall is not allowed to fail, and has even been designated as a tourist destination by the government.

I went in to Shitty Place yesterday for the first time in over a year. I wasn't 10 paces thru the door when a dude asked me, "got fifty cent...a dollar?"

I can't think of a reason to go inside City Place unless there was some sort of tornado raging outside and I needed to seek shelter immediately. Or maybe a zombie attack.

I went into the Burlington Coat Factory there a couple times in the past two years and it looked worse than lowliest thrift store as far as organization, cleanliness,etc. Recently I went to a Burlington in NoVa and could not believe the difference - it looked like a very decent department store, had great service, was clean, organized, wonderful merchandise. What a surprise. Just goes to show how much difference the local management makes. Never ever ever again going into City Place.

Silver Spring Transient (Transit) Center.....MD tax $$$ at work. All I know is that someone should be fired. That's a bunch of malarkey.

& City Place (though I prefer the reference by Anonymous.... "Shitty Place") is only good for hiding out the Zombie Apocalypse (on the top floor) or getting stabbed.

From Caribou's Facebook page today:
Today, April 14, we will close 80 of our Caribou Coffee stores across GA, IL, MI, OH, PA, and D.C. This was not an easy decision to make.

To those in these areas, we would like to say thank you. Thank you to all of our loyal Caribou fans, both dedicated team members and guests, who have made these stores more than just another coffee shop. We will truly miss each and every one of you who have helped build tight-knit communities in Caribous across the country.

We’ve heard your questions and expressions of frustration. We value your comments knowing you may not always agree with our business decisions. We apologize if you believe we have not been more forthcoming about the details around this decision. Our first priority was to work directly with our team members who were impacted by the decision, offering support and assistance.

If you have questions about the status of specific store locations, please visit our store locator.

Thank you for your support. We look forward to continuing to serve you.

Huh? I believe you are quite wrong about Bells closing. They have long since gotten rid of there retail storefront if that is what you mean.

Craig said...

The Coffee Shop is dead.

Long Live the Coffee Shop.

Maybe Peets Coffee will come into the old Caribou place but I don't think it's a slam dunk decision. They will be evaluating all Mid-Atlantic Caribou spots before deciding to plant a flag in a neighborhood. Peets will probably look at drink, food and merchandise sales at the old Caribou location. The bean counters at Peets do not care how many people sit at tables with their laptops and using free Wi-Fi access. Are the customers buying drinks and food?

I have been to Caribou enough times to see people snag a table, break out their laptops and school notes and put in the ear buds without paying a dime for coffee or anything else. They might sit at the same location for HOURS without even ordering a small cup of coffee or hot chocolate. Basically, Caribou became a library for cheap-ass college students and a meeting place for the Ethiopian ex-pat community to chit-chat for infinity. At least the Ethiopians would order a drink from the counter.

Starbucks is much smarter about business. Reduce the number of tables for customers to "drink in" the store. That way, people order their caffeine and food on The Go. Provide less space for Wi-Fi moochers. Very much like a fast food experience that you find at McDonalds.

If I managed Peets Inc., I would seriously consider charging customers for Wi-Fi access. If you bring a laptop or tablet and you make yourself cozy like you were at home, you will have to pay for the privilege. Oh yeah, I would also add a required drink order for anyone hogging up a table. If you hang out...you better order something or you will have to leave the store. Plain & simple.

In reply to Craig:

Bethesda Patch has a sourced story on closings and conversions in Maryland that sounds authoritative:

http://bethesda.patch.com/articles/downtown-bethesda-caribou-to-become-peet-s-coffee

I am not familiar with the DTSS Caribou location, but I haven't noticed systematically more wifi mooching in some of the chains more than others, although, come to think of it, the DTSS Panera seems somewhat heavy on light purchasers.

Ironically, the Marshals in City Place is better than some of the stand alone Marshals that I've been in before. Granted expectations are not high to start, but that has drug me in there twice in the past 15 months!

LaMadaline had a sign up yesterday that said they do plan to open by the end of this week. Not sure about the Scion or the Pete's Pizza.

I do agree Carabou offers an unusually large space on the inside for people to hang out, and a huge outside patio also, however there always seems to be a steady line of people ordering beverages. The loitering seems far worse in the Silver Spring, and all for that matter, Paneras that I've ever been in. I'm sad to see the name go, I thought they were much better than Starbucks - speaking of, any news on if they are still building out one in the Sheraton Hotel on Georgia Ave?

@ Anonymous from April 14 8:14 am

You apparently don't make your way south on Georgia very often, as Bell's retail storefront has been gone and the hair place has been there for years at this point. The hair place is always pretty busy, and Bell's still seems to be active (they have been using the back of the building for their business and you see their delivery vans coming off and on the lot behind all the time). I don't know if they're moving their studio out of the back of the building, but it doesn't appear that they're closing.

If it weren't for Marshalls there's no way I'd step foot into CP. Aside from being, well, shitty...it also gives me the creeps. I used the bathroom in the food court once and there was some shady stuff going on in the stall next to mine. Won't be doing that again!

what exactly is a soft opening? i mean i know what it is, but why don't they just call it an opening!? I know the reasoning is because they want to see how they do and get the kinks out....but if you think you're gonna have kinks? then your clearly not ready to open.

just open or don't until your ready.

but regardless about time something decent opened around here

Anonymous said...

Because when I go to a soft opening I don't expect things to be 100%. Whereas, I tend to be a lot more judgmental when the place is open for business. It's called a practice run. I mean why to do pro sports team bother with having scrimmages before the season starts? Because they want to be ready for the real deal.

Anonymous said...

Practice? We talkin' 'bout practice?

No, but seriously, every restaurant has a soft open. And the reasons are obvious. Weird comment - esp. the "but regardless about time something decent opened around here" this is probably the most boring restaurant to open in quite awhile. And I say that as a person who expressed interest in it opening earlier (primarily because it's activating that corner w/outdoor seating, a nice storefront, etc.)

But it's still way boring compared to most of the other recent openings (La Malinche is awesome, Masa is great, Pete's will be really cool, Society is real nice, Stage Burger fills a niche, Scion is a great addition, etc. It's supremely weird the person thinks a chain like La Madeline is the best opening lately - everything else is much more interesting. But I'd guess the guy who keeps making those comments doesn't actually live in Silver Spring as he's unaware of any of these openings and thinks the Subway is new (hahah).

Stop being so obtuse. It is not trollish stupid crap because I disagree with it. What makes it trollish stupid crap designed to elicit a response is the obvious implication that this site is so full of Silver Spring homers that we would be willing to excuse and defend some place, regardless of its actual quality, or rather lack thereof, just because it is in Silver Spring. Which is stupid and trollish in and of itself, but especially so because there are many posts by Sligo actually DEDICATED to how much Piratz Tavern sucks.

How this is beyond your comprehension is beyond me.

Piratz sucks. The troll @ 8:53 sucks more. That "clown" literally calls everyone a clown. A lot of people hate the trolling on this site, dude. Deal with it.

In the old newsstand space? That's the only vacant space I can think of around there and it's so small I couldn't imagine what could ever work. A coffee shop would likely fit the bill nicely and add more outdoor seating/foot traffic. It'll be curious to see if they can succeed with (beloved) Zeds nearby.

This is my first post, not a previous anon...So do you live in Silver Spring or do you live in Virginia and just like to troll around blogs? I'm honestly asking. I live in Silver Spring and like it, though I agree it could be much more business friendly and should have many more bars/restaurants. I've lived in Virgina and while many of you seem to believe the grass is always greener, frankly NoVa has a ton of their own issues.

Constructive criticism of how Montgomery co. operates makes sense, but if you live in Va and just like to come on blogs to bash Md..you need to get a life.

Anonymous said...

ya know its funny how any time someone has something negative to say or says bethesda or NoVa is better, automaticly they are considered a troll.

Lets be honest here...this is a 3rd rate blog that unless you live in Silver Spring you're unlikely to know about it. I live in DTSS and work in Virginia and frankly people don't even know the town silver spring exists, let alone a blog about it.

So quit hateing on everyone who has something negative to say about SS and calling them trolls. Do you really think some guy from Rossyln runs around the internet looking for blogs about other towns just so he can say how much better his town is?

Fact is, SS is a dismal town that our greatest thing is the discovery channel building which not even most residence of SS know about it.

Your delusion and/or lack of critical thinking is stunning. EVERYONE, including the host, on this blog says negative things about Silver Spring all the goddamned time. What the legitimate posters DON'T do is ply incendiary hyperbole.

If someone says Clarendon or Bethesda > Silver Spring? Fine. All things being equal, I'd actually probably agree. If someone says Silver Spring = Anacostia (which has in fact occurred), that is a troll.

If someone wishes we had more variety in restaurants, that's fine. But when someone says this is the fault of the Ethiopians (which has in fact occurred), that is either blatantly racist or trollish.

If someone says they think the Piratz Tavern sucks, that is the truth. If someone uses the fact that Piratz Tavern sucks as some sort of absurd springboard for spouting off on how much they hate liberal/commie/fascist/whatever MoCo County and even somehow manage to tie Obama to it (which has in fact occurred), that is a troll.

Really, it isn't too difficult to tell the difference and this absurd strawman that keeps getting tossed around that posters here label anyone who criticizes Silver Spring as a "troll" is as tiresome as it is asinine.

The only alternatives are:

1) Just the scenario you described; or
2) Someone who hates where he lives and yet continues to live here. If any of these people posting here are under the age of 18 and thus not yet emancipated from their parents, my sincere apologies. You have full permission to hate away. But other than that, you are presumably an adult not forced to live in Mommy and Daddy's basement because you are a loser at life, and there are a million other places in the DC region you can move to that may better suit your tastes. Please do so and STFU.

Don't worry. The thin skinned bloggers on this blog will dismiss what you say as a troll.

Because when someone says Maryland and this county is business unfriendly they are lablled a troll. This is because it's a "strawman" to equate business unfriendly laws and taxes and take that a springboard to sound off on our incompent leadership in this state and county (which just HAPPENS to be one party)?

Of course when concrete examples are given they'll be ignored or dismissed as more trolling.

Sigh... First off, two different comments from two different posters. Second, I don't see anyone calling anyone a troll because of the comment about DTSS losing prospective jobs to VA. I think that is a viable position to take, though I have no real information as to its accuracy. Third, I didn't say it was a strawman to to equate business unfriendly laws and taxes and take that a springboard to sound off on our incompetent leadership in this state and county. Ironically enough, you just gave a perfect example of an ACTUAL strawman.

Again, I stress, it is not difficult to tell the trolls from the folks that have legitimate concerns or gripes about Silver Spring. And if someone professes to have difficulty doing so, as you seem to Anon 8:52, it is likely you are part of the problem.

WMATA refuses to take over operational control of the facility even AFTER the repairs are completed and the structure is certified as safe for vehicles and pedestrians. Furthermore, WMATA will not run buses from DC to the new transit center.

The odds of complete demolition went up after WMATA's public position.

"WMATA would still operate Metrobus service from the center after the county completes repairs. But he said the agency would no longer pursue plans for inter-city bus operations from the center."

That might be more good news than bad. Was the plan to have dozens of Greyhound buses, etc. join all the Metro and Rideon buses?

Clancy said...

I have also been trying to determine what exactly is meant by "inter-city" buses. Perhaps it only means buses from DC, as a previous comment suggested, but it's strange that article after article on the transit center fails to actually describe/define what service that WMATA is no longer planning on providing through the transit center.

Also, while it's not stated in the Post article, others note that the "inter-city" bus bit is likely just an opening bid in negotiations between Metro and the county over the terms of operations at the center. Basically, Metro has the county over a barrel and are going to get as many favorable terms as they can.

Yes, the plan was to move Greyhound operations from the station at Fenton and Sligo. Then they would stop at a station with direct connections to metro and local buses. Why do you think that would be a bad thing?

Anonymous said...

The obvious implication of my comment is a concern that adding multiple inner-city bus lines to all the dozens of local and regional bus lines (and taxi, and kiss and ride) would be more trouble than it's worth as far as traffic, ease of use, etc.

Care to clarify how it makes any sense that Metro would have the means to revoke Greyhound's ability to use the transit center? If metro is backing out of their contract to take control of the center then obviously they can't tell Greyhound what to do. I'd assume Metro was considering transferring some of their Union Station lines (Megabus, etc.) to SS. I'm fine w/the idea of not turing DTSS into the clusterfuck that is Union Station bus pickup/dropoff, for obvious reasons (apologies if they're not obvious to you).

i know ive been yelling about the county being at fault here, but if it is an "agreement" and not a "contract" then I think even the loudest voices that say the contractors are mostly to blame should take a look at why the county didn't have a hard contract in place with Metro that Metro could not back out of.

Agreement and contract are almost always synonymous. I litigate contract disputes, and the contracts are routinely called "agreements." For instance -- it's usually called a settlement agreement, not a settlement contract.

Anonymous said...

County believes the agreement aka contract is in fact binding. WMATA has always seemed to try and avoid litigation in the past so hopefully they cave without much fuss.

I like the aggressive position that the county is taking with WMATA, but a memorandum of understanding is typically far less powerful than a contract/agreement.
