Update: A Chipotle spokeswoman said the Silverdale opening has been pushed to Saturday, March 12.

Another wave of stores are set to open next month in The Trails at Silverdale shopping center.

Chipotle Mexican Grill will debut March 10, according to a spokeswoman. So will beverage retailer Total Wine and More.

totalwineMOD Pizza, a Seattle-based, made-to-order pizza chain, expects to launch its Trails location March 18.

The county has issued tenant improvement permits to Corner Bakery Café, Forever 21, Verizon, DSW and Sleep Number, allowing those companies to begin outfitting their stores.

A representative for developer CenterCal Properties confirmed Old Navy also is planning a Trails store.

Silverdale Smiles Dentistry was the most recent business to open at the Greaves Way shopping center, joining Blazing Onion, Homegoods, Ulta Beauty and AT&T.

Centercal has yet to announce tenants for a few remaining retail spaces, including a planned grocery store. The developer began work on The Trails in August 2014.

The opening of Chipotle — the first west of Puget Sound — has been highly anticipated since it was announced last summer. But the chain’s reputation took a beating this winter as a series of E. coli and norovirus outbreaks were linked to its restaurants.

According to the New York Times, Chipotle turned to food safety specialist Mansour Samadpour to overhaul its safety protocols. Samadpour is a familiar name in Kitsap. He owns prominent properties in downtown Port Orchard.

Chipotle is posting food safety information here.

Here’s the latest on Trails at Silverdale tenants

1129_TrailsUpdate_KSThe first stores (Ulta, Homegoods and AT&T) debuted at The Trails at Silverdale about a month ago. Since then we’ve gathered a few more updates on future opening dates and expected tenants.

The graphic above shows the latest info confirmed by developer CenterCal Properties LLC. (click to enlarge).

Here are a few key updates:

  • A 5,300-square-foot space near the entrance, initially slated to become one restaurant, has been divided into three spaces. Tenants there haven’t been announced but will open in spring of 2016.

Other stores and restaurants will open between now and mid-2016. You can get a full rundown here. 

There’s still a lot of work to be done on storefronts and landscaping at The Trails, but shoppers could get a feel for how the sprawling retail development off Greaves Way is coming together.

I paid a visit to The Trails this afternoon and snapped a few iPhone photos, which are posted below (the Sun’s Meegan Reid took the Ulta photo above).
