all the buzz in Petworth, Columbia Heights and the 14th Street Corridor-Washington, DC. Welcome to the beautiful life.
As a former Richmond resident, I can say that Ellwood Thompson's is a fantastic company and a great natural foods store. I really hope they come.
The way I read it is ET is ready and willing to move in, but the owners of the real estate are sitting the fence. It's a question of maximizing the remaining rental space. More stores to rent = more revenue to the owners. One large grocer could mean more foot traffic, but would be less revenue from rent (grocery stores usually get a break in rental space).Advocates of ET should express their opinions through Councilman Jim Graham.
I am a former Richmonder as well, and I love Ellwood Thompsons. I think it has much better prepared food than Whole Foods and lots of funky and vegetarian choices. The prices are pretty comparable if not better than Whole Foods. I'd be thrilled if they came.
