The Washington Business Journal has more on Jim Graham's bill for Ellwood Thompson's grocery store: "Ellwood Thompson will get tax relief in the form of a 10-year property tax exemption to come to DC USA.
The legislation renews a similar bill passed in 2008 that was set to expire soon." The article adds that they're looking for financing for the store.
No word from Ellwood Thompson's, and the Richmond Times Dispatch last week quoted the owner as saying "the timing was just not right." Let's hope the bill helps!
