Dunkin’ Donuts to open on Bethesda’s Elm Street

Galaxie  Cleaners on Elm Street is moving upstairs in the Shoppes of Bethesda to make way  for a Dunkin' Donuts Galaxie Cleaners will move to the Hampden Lane side of the Shoppes of  Bethesda

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.

In its place at 4810 Bethesda Ave. went luxury clothing boutique Calypso St. Barth.

Lander’s Luis Group opened a combination Dunkin’ Donuts and Baskin Robbins location in March on Cordell Avenue and a Dunkin’ location in February inside the Bethesda Metro station bus bay.
