A new grocery store is one step closer to coming to the edge of Mt. Airy.
The Northwest is one step closer to getting a new grocery store. Newsworks is reporting that local neighborhood and civics groups gave the grocery store a "yes" vote at a recent Chew and Belfield Neighbors Club meeting, meaning the store will go to city's zoning board with the area's blessing. East Mt. Airy Neighbors were present at the meeting. Check out the Newsworks story on the meeting here, and check the links before for our other stories on the grocery store.
The store could open by 2013.
We wrote about a proposed Bottom Dollar Food store on Wednesday. The store would be located at Chew Avenue and East Washington Lane. The store's developers talked about the planned business at a community meeting with the Chew & Belfield Neighborhood Club on Thursday, according to a Newsworks article. It would be open from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. and could open by 2013. The project needs to be approved by the city Zoning Board of Adjustment. Construction workers at the store will be unionized.
