Amazon is preparing its second full-service Amazon Fresh grocery store in the DC area, this one in Chevy Chase, Maryland.

A construction crew installed Amazon Fresh signage on a former Giant Food store at 5463 Wisconsin Ave., next to the Friendship Heights subway station, on Tuesday. The Giant, one of the chain’s smaller grocery stores, closed in January 2020.

An Amazon spokesperson confirmed the opening in an email: “We’re excited to bring an Amazon Fresh grocery store to the Chevy Chase community, offering low prices on fresh produce and creating hundreds of jobs. High quality.”

Amazon did not immediately provide a final opening date.

Amazon opened its first Amazon Fresh store, offering high-tech shopping carts, at the end of May in Franconia, Virginia, in a former Shoppers Food store. It was the first Amazon Fresh store on the east coast.

Amazon doesn’t disclose the new Amazon Fresh stores until almost the day they open, although several more in the DC area are in the works.

There are currently only 14 Amazon Fresh stores open, primarily in California and the Chicago suburbs, with a location in Bellevue, Washington, outside of Amazon’s hometown of Seattle.
