Thanks to Judith for passing on from my beloved Calvert Woodley:

“I am sending out this email to inform you that Calvert Woodley will temporarily close for all business starting this Saturday, April 4th, at 5:00pm.

That means no online orders, no phone calls, no customers in the store, no employees in the store. It also means online ordering has been disabled, effective immediately. I know this will anger some, and I apologize for that, but there’s no way to handle the many orders we currently have and take more new orders, and still close by Saturday at 5:00pm.

The point of this notice is also to let you know you can pick up your pre-existing orders from the last few days. To handle the rush we will be available the next two days from 10:00am – 5:00pm. If you can’t make it in before Saturday night, or don’t want to, we will hold all orders as we normally do, for as long as you’d like.

How long will CW be closed? Read More

Ed. Note: Thank God.

From the very fine folks at Calvert Woodley:

“Calvert Woodley is changing hands. But, not to worry; the venerable destination for wine and cheese is staying in the family. Ed Sands, owner and operator since 1966, is passing the torch to his son, Michael Sands, who has worked in the business since 1998.

In one iteration or another, Calvert Woodley’s storied history began in 1946. One of the keys to the store’s success is the longevity of the staff, several of whom have been with the store for over 25 years, with a few at 40 years and still going! Read More
