I'm catching a few emails as I travel and will post some relevant news from DC as I can from out here in the big wide world.
"Ellwood Thompson's has been overwhelmed with support from Columbia Heights residents as well as others in DC's other outstanding communities. Thank you all very much! An update in our search is that we are currently very interested in the DC USA development nearing completion on 14th Ave. We encourage any support that the neighborhood's interested residents can provide??"
"We would like to explain our store concept a little clearer since there have been a lot of comparisons to other Natural Markets in the area. Ellwood Thompson's is a full-service Natural/Organic Market that does not sell any products that contain artificial flavors, colors or preservatives. Our products contain no hydrogenated oils, parabens, high fructose corn syrup or transfats."
"The store is approximately 15,000 SF and we're stewards of local farming and merchants (often working directly with the farm). Quality is top priority and sampling is encouraged. We have a full-service meat case (free-range varieties) as well as a deli case/hot bar and a health and beauty section. I hope this information is helpful in providing a snapshot of what Ellwood's has to offer Columbia Heights."
