A sandwich shop chain has rolled out of a prime Carytown storefront.
The Subway at Cary Court has shut down. A sign posted outside the window this week did not offer a reason for the store’s closure, but Commonwealth Commercial broker and Cary Court’s leasing agent Jim McVey said the tenant’s lease had expired.
McVey could not comment on prospects for refilling the space, but said Subway vacated about a week ago.
There is one other vacant storefront at Cary Court tucked in a corner of the strip center between the former Subway and a Hair Cuttery. The rest of the Can Can Brasserie-anchored center’s storefronts are occupied. Sauer Properties owns Cary Court, which totals about 60,000 square feet on the 3100 block of West Cary Street.
Subway’s move comes about five months after a new Jimmy John’s franchise opened two blocks over on Cary Street.
Update: Shailen Patel, one of the owners of the Carytown Subway shop, said they are actively looking to find a new location somewhere within Carytown. He said they decided to shut down temporarily as the Cary Court lease came due and while they look for another location. Patel said he and his partners have other Subways around town, including the nearby location at the corner of West Broad Street and Boulevard.
