Garrett Popcorn Shops opens its new store in Washington D.C.

FBR Staff Writer Published 11 May 2016

Garrett Popcorn Shops is opening its first location in the Washington, D.C. metro area at The Fashion Centre at Pentagon City.

For more than six decades, Garrett Popcorn has been handcrafting small batches of gourmet Popcorn for millions of loyal fans using only the highest quality ingredients and its signature blend of non-GMO kernels.

Opening on Thursday, May 12 at 11 a.m. and located on the Metro Level near the entrance to the Pentagon City Metro stop, commuters, nearby office workers and shoppers can grab a gourmet treat during their daily travels, as a lunch time snack or while perusing one of the mall's many retailers. Additionally, any of the Signature Recipes make for a perfect appetizer, party takeaway or host gift.

"We decided to open a Shop in the D.C area based on demand from our fans and the fact that our 66 year tradition of handcrafting gourmet Popcorn complements Washington D.C.'s rich history," said Scott Schroeder, Chief Brand Officer, Garrett Popcorn Shops. "With the addition of our Pentagon City location - our 50th Shop opening worldwide - Garrett can continue to deliver Handcrafted Happiness to fans for years to come."

To celebrate The Fashion Centre at Pentagon City grand opening, Garrett Popcorn is "rolling out the Copper Kettles" with opening day only specials, including:

Garrett Mix Treat Bags for just $1 each
One Gallon, Signature Blue Tins of Garrett Mix for $19.49

The Pentagon City Mall location also marks the 50th Shop opening for Garrett Popcorn Shops. Garrett Popcorn is calling on fans to help celebrate the 50th Shop Opening on social media by sharing a picture of themselves at any domestic Garrett Popcorn Shop using #GarrettPopcorn50.
