Stonewall Kitchen Opens New Company Store in National Harbor, MD

York, Maine — Stonewall Kitchen, award winning specialty food manufacturers and retailers, based in York, Maine is excited to announce the opening of their ninth store in the National Harbor Development in Washington, DC. Scheduled for a mid-November opening date, this is the first Stonewall Kitchen store to open outside of New England.

National Harbor is a new 300-acre mixed-use waterfront development being built by the Peterson Companies on the shores of the Potomac River in Prince George's County, Maryland. Milton Peterson, York resident and founder of the Peterson Companies approached Stonewall Kitchen two years ago about the possibility of the Maine-based company opening one of their stores in this unique site. Stonewall Kitchen will be joining Foster's Clambake another Maine restaurant that has been opened in the development since June.

This premier destination community is located just 8 miles from Washington DC includes fine restaurants, shopping, office space nightspots, residences, a marina, and a new location for the National Children's Museum. The anchor of the project is the $565 million Gaylord National Hotel and Convention Center. Stonewall Kitchen is proud to be one of the retail shops to be open for visitors and residents alike.

Stonewall Kitchen's new store will be one of several specialty shops located in the residential/hotel area of the development. The 2,500 sq. ft. store will offer both items for the home and garden along with the entire Stonewall Kitchen line of specialty foods. Stonewall Kitchen distributes its products throughout the nation but is eager to open a company operated store in this new urban market.
