Well, that's just about right, the average of the top 10 CEO salaries in VA is 390x that of theRead More average worker salary of $45,000. US Avg is 475x. Don't know why the average worker is complaining about wage stagnation and lack of jobs. Poor CEOs must work so hard to keep all that money out of the tax man's hands and the grubby hands of the worker! How can they possibly survive otherwise?

That must be why NG is dropping retirees insurance.

When taxes are imposed on various industries then to stay in business the prices increase on theRead More consumer! Obamacare , gas taxes, payroll taxes, tolls, the proposed soda and candy tax , your tobacco tax is 75% of what the product really costs! Commercial Property tax increases! Do you people see what's going on here? This country is being destroyed by the Democrats! It is starting to resemble The a Soviet Union! We should change the name of this country to the USSA!

And all this time i thought it was Pork Barrel spending.

Mark, Your words are absolutely disgusting. Please do not use this comment thread as a vehicle toRead More spew your racist mentality. And for your information, food-borne illnesses come from agriculture, period. All around the world, including in the U.S. Lastly, your hatred for people of colour does not mean that you understand disease, at all. Good luck in life.

Have been using Relay Foods for two months. The produce looks like it is chosen for a photo shootRead More and tastes just as good. Have been very satisfied with the meats as well. Looking forward to the return of the Bounty Box when local farms begin producing again. Reliable home delivery and excellent quality.

Good to know Helenmarie; I hadn't heard of Relay Foods until I wrote this story.
Safeway could be bought. (Patch file photo.)
Fairfax Watcher March 7, 2014 at 03:39 pm
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.

It's always that "evil Walmart" with Lefties...

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.

good lord, get a grip folks! The empty Fuddruckers bldg is way too big for a bagel place....and ifRead More it's true the Bagel Bakery wasn't paying rent on time the landlord had every right to get rid of then.....don't know why the bagel people (and I like bagels) are all assuming WRIT is to blame. If you were a landlord and your tenant wasn't paying rent on time, what would you do? Let's not jump to such extreme conclusions.

Note to self: Do as much shopping as possible at the Bradlee shopping center.

Alexandria Pastry is selling Capital Bagel Bakery's bagels, fyi.
The Giant store at 530 First St. was purchased by Edens, a mixed-use developer.
Trace March 7, 2014 at 03:24 pm
I think Edens is a pretty savvy real estate group. Hopefully they will understand the demand in theRead More market for some of the necessities the Giant provides and will seek out a tenant that will satisfy that demand.
Jon Rosenbaum March 8, 2014 at 06:50 am
Edens recently bought the ABC site but has owned the Giant for years. The new Harris Teater, due toRead More open in the fall and a block from the Giant, will mean the demise of the Giant. Edens is very creative but doubt a new Giant is going to be in the mix.
matt tallmerq March 10, 2014 at 01:50 pm
I will be very upset if the Giant closes. It has dramatically improved over the last few years. MyRead More wife has celiac's disease, and it carries many more glutten-free items than TJ's, and at a much lower cost than Whole Paycheck. In addition, what will become of the ABC store? Will those of us without cars be forced to violate federal law and purchase alcohol in the district?

That's a great suggestion, LaMora, I hope that she moves to another location. WRIT is treating theRead More business owner shabbily, and hopefully the word will spread so others do not get involved with them. Such a sad situation for the business owner and local patrons.
Don Beale February 25, 2014 at 09:23 am
Real Estate Investment Trusts are faceless, soulless entities. The will make sure that no one withRead More WRIT is identified by name in this action. For them, its all about the bottom line and shareholder value.

We could use a bagel place in hybla valley...but I don't have an answer to the oven problem

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.

Great to see this for the Parker Gray folks!

Love this little gem in North Old Town. Also a big win for those living in Parker Gray.
