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.

This is located near the Dunn Loring Metro stop in Merrifield. It is a far cry from being in Vienna.Read More I sure hope no one drives around Vienna looking for this fine place.

Hi John, Thanks for your comment. The address is in the story: 2750-J Gallows Road

Look at the parking shortage and street access problems with Vienna traffic let alone cost to bringRead More old buildings like MacGruders up to code and energy efficiency. it is cheaper to build new but too little land available for parking in any case Lavk of parking abd access plus a crumbling building was why Trader Joes opted out on Thats Amore.

A mix of good food stores can certainly thrive in a big town like Vienna, with its central suburbanRead More location. Maple Avenue Market will continue to be my favorite, but, like most folks, I shop in a variety of places. I suspect that other businesses we want in Vienna are also on the drawing board somewhere.

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.

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.
