Scuttlebutt confirmed! Back in January 2014 we learned that Glen’s Garden Market plans to open a second spot in Takoma had fallen through. The scuttlebutt at the time was “they have a new partnership with a developer in Shaw.” Yesterday the City Paper reported a lease being finalized in the new Shay building at 8th and U St, NW:
“The new market will be a smaller version of the Dupont original with 2,100-square feet of retail space versus 5,300. The Shaw location won’t have room for a pizza oven or a smoker, but other than that, it will offer the same things, just in tighter confines.”
Standby for a November opening according to the report.
“MRP Realty, developers of commercial, residential and mixed-use real estate across the Washington metropolitan region, and Ellis Development Group (Ellis), today announced that Whole Foods Market has signed a lease for an approximately 40,000-square-foot store at 965 Florida Avenue, NW. No target opening date has been set.
“Whole Foods Market is a best-in-class grocer that matches well with our development,” said MRP principal Matt Robinson. “Their addition will not only be an asset to the project, but to the local community.”
“For years, residents this side of U Street and Shaw have been eagerly waiting for a high-quality natural and organic grocery store,” said Chip Ellis, president of Ellis Development Group. “We look forward to working with Whole Foods Market to create the best possible space for them and their customers.”
“With so much excitement surrounding a possible location in Shaw – a fun, vibrant and culturally significant neighborhood – we’re thrilled to make it official,” said Whole Foods Market Mid-Atlantic Region president Scott Allshouse. “We look forward to offering our customers – both longtime shoppers and those new to us – access to even more of the highest quality natural and organic products available and show why we’re called ‘America’s Healthiest Grocery Store.’”
Whole Foods Market currently has 417 stores in the U.S., Canada and the U.K., with 44 in its Mid-Atlantic Region. The company is a leading natural and organic grocer with a commitment to transparency and maintaining the highest quality standards in the industry. Its quality standards for food prohibit artificial flavors, colors, sweeteners, preservatives or hydrogenated fats.
Located at 965 Florida Avenue, 965 Florida Ave. is a District-owned parcel near Howard University. In July 2013, MRP won the District’s bid to redevelop the parcel in a joint venture with Ellis.
The 370,000-square-foot mixed-use building will feature approximately 400 residential units, 30 percent of which will be made available as affordable dwelling units. MRP and Ellis will begin processing the Planned Unit Development for the building this summer.”
“Thank you for letting us know that this is occurring and taking the time to write in =)
What this bag is for – it comes in every case (at time of production) that arrives to store and is to be used for sampling at store level if that is worked into our agreement with that particular chain. So, it’s not really about being ‘allowed to do so’ but more of that we need to correct it so it’s utilized properly.
It’s a common error that happens at the store level simply because that is not relayed to those that put it on the shelf for some reason. When we first loaded into Wal-Mart they had it out as well as their ‘stocking crew’ did not know otherwise.
***If you could give me the location in which you’ve found this we can properly address the issue with the broker managing the account and rectify the issue….also to be sure it’s not at other locations as well.***
Again, Thanks for taking the time to let us know! Greatly Appreciate it!
Send me your address and we’ll have our customer service team send you some coupons.
“Heads up neighbors that my husband and I both got sick with all the symptoms of listeria after eating this exact hummus purchased at the Safeway in Petworth. Check your labels against the FDA listing.”
Sabra Dipping Co., LLC announced that it is voluntarily recalling approximately 30,000 cases of its Classic Hummus due to possible contamination with Listeria monocytogenes. This measure is limited to five SKUs of Classic Hummus sold nationwide. To date, no other Sabra product is affected by this recall.
Listeria monocytogenes is an organism, which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
To date, there have been no reports indicating that these products have caused any illness.
The products being recalled are listed below and were distributed to retail outlets, including food service accounts and supermarkets, in the U.S. Consumers can find code and use by dates on the top of each package.
