Tropical Smoothie coming to Belle View Shopping Center; Pro Feed closes

Pro Feed

Pro Feed Pet Nutrition in the Belle View Shopping Center recently closed.

Tropical Smoothie will soon be opening in the Belle View Shopping Center, while Pro Feed Pet Nutrition Centers in the same plaza has closed.

Construction for Tropical Smoothie is underway in a 2,100 square-foot space between Weight Watchers and the Belle View Barber Shop at 1610 Belle View Boulevard, according to a spokeswoman for KLNB Retail, which manages the center. No opening date is set yet, although the store is already listed on Tropical Smoothie’s website

Pro Feed, which was located at 1628A Belle View Boulevard, recently shut down. As of Sunday the space was mostly cleared out, and a sign on the door directed shoppers to Ally & Indy pet boutique in Old Town.

It’s not clear if the entire Pro Feed chain is out of business, but the closure of the Belle View location appears to be the latest in a series of store closings for the pet food and supply retailer. Locations in Rockville, Chevy Chase, Vienna and Washington D.C. have all shut down recently. As of Monday, only the King Street store was still listed on the Pro Feed website, but it also appears to be closed.

A number listed on Pro Feed’s website is no longer in service, and their Facebook page is no longer active.
