Bittersweet Corner Store Update

RCCR corner storeI was hoping that my last update on the store being renovated at the corner of Rock Creek Church Road and Warder would be more positive than this, but I guess  sometimes you have to take the good with the bad. It is the goal of the owners to have it opened in the next couple of weeks. As you can see from the one image, the interior is coming along. It looks like its going to be a nice, open area.

Now for the bad, within the last 24 hours, vandal have damaged the glass of the front door and one of the windows. While this validates the recent addition of bars on the windows, I think its sad that the store was targeting before its even had a chance to open. You may recall it was also the victim of graffiti back on June 19th.

  1. They should seriously install bulletproof glass. What a shame

    Ouch! It really sucks that one dumb vandal can do such great harm. The store was looking so good and coming along so nicely. I admired the tasteful redo of the building just this morning as I drove past en route to work. My fear is that the owners will put up those smaller hideous bars that block out everything. Safer for them, uglier for the neighborhood.

    I just hope that the owners aren’t too deterred, as good things are sure to come in time. Heck I was told that the corner was once an open air drug market.
