Pike News from CPRO

Shop Local Shop Arlington!
Arlington's new retail campaign, Shop Local: Shop Arlington, is designed to help all Arlingtonians – whether you are working, living or visiting – shop local. In tough economic times, your dollars mean business.

Adams Square Demolition
The long awaited start of the 28 month Penrose Square construction project occurred last week as the building at 2405 Columbia Pike (which previously housed the Lady Hamilton store and others) was reduced to rubble. The old strip shopping center was built in 1952 and 1964, and will be replaced by a new 7 story mixed-use complex with a new Giant store, 30,000 sq. ft. of other retail, 299 apartments, and a new public square. Demolition of the remaining Giant pharmacy and Giant grocery buildings is expected in the next 30 days.

M&R Mini-Market Grocery Opens!
New mini-market grocery located at 2609 Columbia Pike, just down the street from the old Giant Grocery. M&R Grocery offers a variety of every-day items (milk, bread, soda, eggs, cereal, etc.) as well as lots of party supplies and more. Store hours are 9:00 am-9:00 pm Monday – Saturday and 10:00 am-7:00 pm on Sunday. Parking is available just a few doors down in the parking lot adjacent to the CVS.
