reports the Richmond organic grocer put out a press release that they've terminated their lease in DCUSA.
I don't know about you, but I was sick of hearing about them almost being super close to very nearly signing a lease -- for the last two years. Hopefully we can get something useful in there that actually wants to be there, realizes there are customers waiting and hoping, and doesn't jerk everyone around.
What would you like to see? Trader Joe's would be pretty great.
If you want to relive the futility, here's all the posts I've written over the years about this stupid store. For awhile there I believed them when they said they were close to opening, but considering each time I asked them they said they were almost there and never provided any details, it became obvious that they either didn't have the money or the ability to open the store. I'm annoyed that I wasted so much time writing about them.
Have fun in Richmond. We'll be spending our dollars somewhere else.
UPDATE: Wash Biz Journal reports that DCUSA's broker has been in touch with "several grocery operators" and "We believe it's a viable grocery opportunity and there are a number of groups interested," he said, though he would not specify which. "That's the direction we're planning on going in."
