In what is arguably the least surprising news I have ever posted:
January 13, 2011, Richmond, VA – Ellwood Thompsons’s Local Market: Further to the
October 2008 signing of a lease agreement with New York based Grid Properties, for space
within DCUSA in Washington, DC, the parties have mutually agreed to terminate the lease, after
full analysis of the challenging economic circumstances.
In announcing the termination, Rick Hood, CEO of Ellwood Thompson’s Local Market,
stated “We regret that Ellwood Thompson’s was not able to proceed with Grid Properties in
order to occupy the space in Columbia Heights.”
As a twitter user said – now is the time to reignite hopes for a Trader Joe’s!!!
