|Future site of Zips at Hechinger Mall.|
The Zips Dry Cleaners chain is coming to Hechinger Mall. Interior demo work has begun in the space that is near Safeway. This space was previously Ashley Stewart clothing store. Zips has been in operation since 1996 and has about 40 stores in DC, Maryland, Virginia, and Pennsylvania. Many of the stores are franchised. Just peeking inside, I can see that the process of build-out is in the very early stages, so they won't open anytime soon. I'd look for it later this year. Zips will be located at 1571 Maryland Ave NE.
