There is always a reason for a price-increase - I can't remember ever reading about a reason for aRead More price-decrease. It's possible no one else has noticed this. Isn't capitalism wonderful?

The disease came from China! Aids came from Africa, other diseases come from Mexico but yet we letRead More people flood to this country and they bring those diseases with them!

The price of pork can also go up because the price of beef is up. It's not just weather andRead More disease, it's also cost of fuel.
Sleepy's Filling Former Blockbuster Space at Dillingham Square. Greg Hambrick

Glad to hear that Rappaport Management Company was able to find a tenant for that big empty spaceRead More and so quickly. it speaks well of our community, and Sleepy's doesn't require a lot of parking. The owners must be thrilled with the location and it's visibility off Old Bridge Road. As a resident I'm less thrilled but hopefully the new landscaping will mature quickly and make a nice buffer.

WELL...............no worries for those Kroger lovers or haters as SAFEWAY went to Albertson'sRead More owner, CERBERUS. CERBERUS plans on reforming Safeway stores to look/feel like Trader Joe's.

It's always that "evil Walmart" with Lefties...

Cerberus will probably close at least half the chain as most equity firms are apt to do in order toRead More up profit and create a stream of returns that will up their chances of passing it off to someone else in a few years.

Yes, an investment in economic development. MD & P.G. Co. are investing in National HarborRead More including a gambling casino attraction and other amenities along with the creative investment strategy listed here in this article. Old Town has looked ahead to capitalize on the attractions on the other side of the river by increasing hotel space and working with National Harbor to get visitors to use Old Town as a destination during their stay across the river. Fairfax County across from National Harbor on the US Route 1 or Richmond Highway corridor seemingly anticipates gamblers in need of fast and easy loans given the proliferation of Car Title Loan Businesses popping up like mushrooms. Can't imagine the VA legislature concerning itself with much more than bills that seek to limit human rights, abortion rights, economic rights, health care rights, environmental rights, voter rights or any other progressive effort that give more rights to citizens. Just another bass ackward state of the old Confederacy that can't fully acknowledge modernity.

I would love to see a restaurant back in the Old Mill, it's a beautiful spot. A coffee shop would beRead More nice, and maybe some kind of a chain store!

New Landscaping Standards are good for many reasons. Helps make the area more attractive toRead More customers, better for the environment and better for people walking in the area. I would include adding bicycle racks as part of the landscape improvement to encourage people to bike to shopping.
