It’s been a tough run for the Cascades Marketplace shopping center in Sterling. It was just in late May that the longtime tenant Corner Bakery Cafe closed up shop. (See story here.) Now comes word that its neighbor next door — the Boston Market restaurant — has closed as well.
A sign on the door says: “It has been a privilege and honor to serve you. Unfortunately, this Boston Market restaurant has closed.” It goes on to direct customers to other area locations in Fairfax.
The Boston Market is the latest in a string of restaurant closures in the shopping center. Besides the Corner Bakery, Baja Fresh, BGR and Famous Dave’s all closed in the past few years. The BGR location was recently filled by The Pit Stop barbecue restaurant.
The center is still anchored by a Giant supermarket, a Home Depot and a Gold’s Gym, but besides the many restaurant spaces available, there is also an empty 24,000 s.f. where the Staples office supply store used to be. It closed more than a year ago.
