A large new store called Painted Tree Boutiques is on its way to Loudoun County. It will reportedly be the first location for the growing brand in the DC market.
Painted Tree Boutiques will take over a 35,000 s.f. space in the Sugarland Crossing shopping plaza. That’s in Sterling off Route 7. The center is also home to a Burlington Coat Factory and a Lidl grocery store.
The space that Painted Tree is taking was once part of the Shopper’s supermarket that closed back in 2018.
Inside Painted Tree Boutiques, visitors will find dozens upon dozens of individual kiosks representing artists and artisans specializing in gifts, home decor, and boutique clothing.
The brand describes it as “an Etsy marketplace and Pinterest catalog come to life.” In other words, small business people — who for example make jewelry or scarves or ceramics — can lease a spot in Painted Tree Boutiques and become part of a larger retail center.
It’s similar to an antiques mall where individual vendors lease space — only this time it’s artists and craftspeople offering their new creations.
There are currently more than 30 Painted Tree Boutiques open or coming soon across the country. There are two locations here in the Commonwealth — one in Virginia Beach and one in the Richmond area.
No word yet on when Painted Tree Boutiques in Sterling will open. The deal was just recently signed, so watch for activity in the space to start soon.
