Shoppers Food & Pharmacy said Tuesday that it plans to relocate its corporate headquarters from Lanham to Bowie in October.

The company will move to the new Maryland Science and Technology Center near Routes 50 and 301. The 466-acre business campus that when complete, will include 3 million-square-feet of office space, retail stores, shops and restaurants.

Shoppers will be one of the first tenants in the second of two newly constructed office towers. The company will occupy close to 25,000 square feet of office space and 2,520 square feet to be used for the distribution of sales materials to the grocer's stores.

Shoppers has more than sixty stores in the Baltimore- Washington region. The company said in a statement the new headquarters brings it closer to the stores where it does the most business.

The new headquarters will feature a free fitness center, a café and a lake surrounded by a three-quarter-mile scenic walking and exercise trail.
