Balducci’s Food Lover’s Market (11850 Freedom Drive) will hold its grand opening on June 22 at 11 a.m.

The opening weekend will include chef demonstrations, food tastings, a beer bar and member-only offers throughout the store.

Parking is free daily in the silver garage for two hours for customers. No app is required.

In 2005, Balducci’s former location in The Spectrum, closed because it was underperforming. The new location is on the ground floor of The Signature, a 508-unit apartment building.

Grocery deliveries will also be offered soon. The gourmet market has seven other locations, including one in New York, Connecticut and Maryland.

  • Why do you bother?

    It seems odd to conclude that since your business isn’t working in an environment with non-problematic parking, let’s move it to an environment whose parking situation is fraught at best.

      Agreed, but there are a few thousand more residential units and several million more square feet of office space in and near RTC now. More condos on the way once 1901 Reston Pkwy is redeveloped.

      • Why do you bother?

        Fair point.

    Love Balducci’s, but with the parking issues (thank you Boston Properties for ruining so many businesses) and dealing with carrying groceries to a parking garage? Unfortunately, we’ll pass. We visited the previous Reston location weekly.

      What’s so different from carrying groceries to a parking garage than across an open parking lot. Rain, snow, and ice come to mind…

      • Why do you bother?

        I rarely have to carry packages more than a few yards in an open parking lot. A garage means elevators, etc. I used to shop for lunch at the Harris Teeter in Tyson’s and it was a huge pain.

    Your check’s in the mail, shill…

    Maintaining the boycott!

    Does “no app” also mean no kiosk? Can I park and walk straight into the store. Like Harris Teeter at Tyson’s. Or Whole Foods who have a garage behind them on Sunset Hills. Or to I have to find s kiosk and waste time trying to figure out how to use it?
