The Dunkin’ Donuts franchise that used to be on Bethesda Avenue will open in mid or late September in a new location on Elm Street.
Franchise operator Boris Lander said the move one block over will put the Dunkin’ at 4943 Elm St. in the Shoppes of Bethesda.
Galaxie Cleaners will move from 4943 Elm St. upstairs to 4926 Hampden Lane, also part of the Shoppes of Bethesda property. That move will take place on Wednesday and Thursday, with the drycleaner business hoping to reopen in the new spot on Friday.
The Dunkin’ Donuts move was necessary when property owner Federal Realty declined to renew Lander’s Bethesda Avenue lease. The franchise location closed at the end of May.
