The Jimmy John’s in the King’s Crossing Shopping Center has closed.

Located in the shops across from Walmart at 6305 Richmond Highway (see map), Jimmy John’s closed permanently because the franchisee decided to cease operations there, according to a Jimmy John’s spokesman. The location opened in late 2012, shortly after the shopping center was completed.

The Kings Crossing Shopping Center includes 11 retail spaces, which are home to sweetFrog, Sarku, Chuck E. Cheese’s and Capital MMA, among others. The center was sold last year to Rosenthal Properties, a Washington D.C.-based commercial real estate company, for $23.7 million. Walmart still owns its building and a large portion of the parking lot, according to county tax records.

A representative from Rosenthal did not immediately respond to an email asking about possible future tenants for the Jimmy John’s space.

Jimmy John’s opened a new location at the other end of Richmond Highway in the ground-level retail of the Belvoir Square apartments in 2019. There are also nearby locations in Kingstowne and the City of Alexandria.

This story has been updated to correct the date that Jimmy John’s opened.
