The Burn has learned that Patel Brothers, a national grocery store chain specializing in Indian foods, is opening a spot in the Ashburn Farm Village Center. That’s the shopping center where Global Foods is located currently along with Buffalo Wing Factory, Advance Auto Parts and other businesses.
Patel Brothers is an Illinois-based brand with some 55 locations in more than 20 states. Their motto is: “Celebrating Our Food…Our Culture” and they carry such treasured items as karela, black mustard seeds and fresh sitafal.
It was nearly a year ago that The Burn first reported the Global Foods space was on the market. (See our story here.) Patel Brothers will take roughly 27,000 s.f. for its new store, leaving another nearly 30,000 of space available. No official word on when Global Foods will close, nor when Patel Brothers will open.
