Ellwood Thompson's tax relief bill passes

Lots of news about Ellwood Thompson's recently! Yesterday we heard from Ellwood Thompson's owner Rick Hood that the organic grocery store was looking for funding for construction from the city, and today we learn that the bill Jim Graham introduced giving them a tax break was passed by the city council on Tuesday. Should be interesting!

For those unfamiliar, the grocery store stocks mostly organic and locally grown products, and would be moving into the Irving Street side of DCUSA. Their plans have been on hold since April, saying it was due to the economy, and they've said they're looking for more funding.
