Amazon is coming to Arlington, but you probably already knew that. They are making a brand new headquarters in Crystal City, or should I say, “National Landing.” It has been talked about so many times, and in so many places that the anticipation keeps growing. This is especially the case with local retailers in the Crystal City area. They are excited.
According to Crystal City’s Business Improvement District (BID), daily customer visits for local business have gone down in the past decade. BID, as well as the local businesses, are excited about the new HQ. They often see it as 25,000 new customers. A lot of businesses are making repairs, remodeling their establishments, changing the services they provide, and much more. Everyone is excited and mostly positive, but we’ll just have to see if it all pans out.
