Penzey's in Rockville

I can't believe no one has posted this yet! Last night I got a postcard from Penzey's saying that their new store in Rockville will be opening "soon." I don't have the card with me so I can't provide any further info, but surely others will have received one, too.

  1. What took them so long???

    1. Yes, I got one, too! Looking for employees. It's an address on the Pike. I can't find the postcard now either and I can't find anything about it on their website.

      1. Penzey's website notes two new stores opening in the D.C. area in the spring, one in Rockville, MD at 1048 Rockville Pike and one in Falls Church, VA at 513 Broad.

        1. I'm dying to try out a store...does anyone know when the opening will be?

            If it's like the Pittsburgh store, you'll love it. Items are rarely out of stock; you can sniff samples of just about everything (hmmm... tellicherry or malabar?); you can see the various container sizes and determine which is best for your needs. Staff is enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Downside: REALLY easy to go impulse crazy.

          2. The Rockville location is in the same shopping plaza as Sam Woo. No signs up yet, paper on all the windows.

            They announced it I think 6 months ago, but I haven't heard anything in a while.
