If you recall, ET's, a Richmond-based organic supermarket, waffled for literally years about coming, always saying they were almost there, but then in January 2011 suddenly decided not to open and moved to Rockville. Here's the whole sad, annoying saga. The space has sat vacant since then.
But not anymore! Readers report seeing permits and other signs posted in the window for Petco, the big pet retailer. Should be helpful for those folks in the area with animals, though I hope it doesn't affect Mr. Larry's Pet Supply Store (aka Claws and Paws) at 11th and Lamont. Even if you go to Petco, check out Mr. Larry's too, he seems like a nice man.
By my calculation, this means that DCUSA is almost completely full. Petco is going into spot 125 and/or 125. (Note: these floor plans are out of date, so some places listed may have been replaced by other stuff.)
