WALMART Backs out of DC deal in poorest neighborhoods

No one on here seems to be talking about Walmart’s decision to back out of its deal to build 2 more stores in DC. I do not support Walmart as a consumer, but what upsets me is that DC made big decisions based on Walmart coming to NE and SE DC. The city closed businesses and razed buildings all for nothing. People lost their jobs and were hoping to get back in their feet when the Walmart arrived. Now that’s not happening. It’s a very sad situation for those low wage workers and for SE DC’s business development prospects.

Is Bergami's Pizza closed for good?

Over the last week or so I’ve noticed that the Bergami’s Pizza at Rhode Island Row appears to be closed. I didn’t see any signs, and it appears that they’ve up and gone for good. Did the store go out of business? I loved their pizza, and it always seemed full of customers whenever I went in. Any insight about what’s going on there would be great.

Rhode Island Ave NE – Forman Mills Shopping Center

I’ve noticed a few storefronts closing in the Forman Mills Shopping Center by the Rhode Island Avenue Metro. I live near there and have dreams of this shopping center turning into something respectable one day soon. Is there any word on who might be moving into the abandoned store fronts? It’s a great location, being right off of RI, but it just seems to be going downhill every time I pass by there. Anyone heard anything?
