A look at the Aspen Hill Wal-Mart

In a press release titled “SAVINGS, JOBS COMING TO ASPEN HILL,” Wal-Mart announced on Friday Sept. 23 that it planned to open a store in Aspen Hill by 2013.

The deal is with Bruce Lee’s Lee Development Group — the developer behind the Fillmore Silver Spring music hall — on a site at the corner of Aspen Hill Road and Connecticut Avenue that was originally developed as a building for defense contractor BAE Systems.

Apparently, Lee was having trouble leasing the 43-year-old building. He says in Wal-Mart’s press release that, “We own a large, obsolete office building that belongs on I-270, but is marooned in the middle of Aspen Hill’s retail district.”

Once complete, the store would be 118,000 square feet, sell groceries and employ about 300 people, according to the chain. The plans represent a continued effort by the chain to push into more urban areas. Wal-Mart currently has one store in Montgomery County, in Germantown, and plans four in the District.
