Seen & Heard: New Retail on the Avenue in Del Ray?

1604 1606 1608 Mount Vernon Avenue in the Del ray neighborhood of Alexandria, Virginia

New Retail or Restaurant on the way for Del Ray?

It recently came to our attention that Marilyn’s Beauty Lounge and Mama Raecer’s, the local mom and pop place that delivers good soul food have closed. These business are located in the 1600 block of Mount Vernon Avenue in the Del Ray neighborhood of Alexandria, Virginia.

After doing some research and thanks to our readers, I can confirm to you that the building that houses Mama Raecer’s, Marilyn’s, and E.C. Robinson Upholstery has been SOLD. The sale price is between $1.0-1.2 Million which is less than what the property has been assessed at.

It is unclear at this time what the plans for the building are. More updates as they become available.
