They have been running the FIOS down Bristow Road as well. They have been in New Bristow Village. My part of the subdivision is all in. Saw a Verizon truck a couple times running fiber a couple weeks ago.
They are all over, a few weeks ago they laid down the fiber in Oak Valley as well. Now if they would just turn it on!

There is an ad in the Gainesville Times that Plow and Hearth Outlet is moving. They don't say where they are moving to but to visit them at their other current locations. Sounds like they are closing down, not really moving. I'm sad to see them go. Everything is 20% off right now.

i just noticed more than half of the roads on 55 between 15 and 29 are torn down. Its safe and obvious to assume they will improve it and fix it but i didnt think there was anything wrong with the road in the first place, or is that just me? only thing i can think of is making the road perfect for the grand opening of walmart???

They are doing the same thing on 15 north near dominion valley. I don't think it has anything to do with walmart, just the state/county spending money fixing roads that have nothing wrong with them for the sake of spending money.

on a side note, seems like the police got bored and started to patrol 55 more. Saw 2 tickets handed out by the same cop within 45 mins going to and from the store.

You are the type of person that will complain if someone hands you a $100 bill. Seriously, would you prefer they wait till the roads are like those in DC, causing flat tires and messing up the alignment?

And on a side note, your comment was terribly confusing. "half of the roads on 55 between 15 and 29 are torn down." I didn't know route 55 consisted of multiple roads and how do you really tear something down that is the ground? For others that are confused, I ran this through Google Translate.'Half of route 55, between route 15 and route 29 had been milled.'

I typically don't comment on people's language/spelling/grammar/etc, but when you are such a Negative Nancy, you are just asking for it.

does anyone know a "backdoor" way to confirm whether FIOS is coming to a neighborhood? I've called and check on line, but no luck. I asked a technician installing it on a neighboring street, and he said that it is (but that was months ago). I'm in Gainesville near HT, but not in a HOA. Would the county have any copy of project plans?

Walmart is opening Sept 12, and Kohls Sept 24th. Can't wait to see what dining options are coming to that site.

They started getting really bad reviews (on Yelp and also just heard bad things from other locals). Lots of complaints about terrible service, not having items listed on their menu, etc.

I only had a chance to go there once, for lunch, and I thought my food was very good, and the service fine.

went to wing it once to try their hot wing challenge .... i beat it and they didnt didnt have the prize in stock (wing it shirt). They told me it will take couple weeks to get it in stock and they will call me but took them half a year....and i had to call them

ps...dont ever try the challenge... not worth the pain

I used to enjoy going there, but then they managed to run off all the good employees and management started treating regular customers like dirt. Good recipe for failure!

Nothing new really but looks like Regal finally added the Virginia Gateway theater to their "Coming Soon" list of theaters:

Just wondering if there is an official word on Walmart opening on 9/12.

Only thing i found was this fundraiser that shows the 9/12 date.

Thinking about how much money I'll save once Wal-Mart is open.
Half as many trips to Wegman's.
No trips to Manassas for auto parts.
Lower prices on lots of stuff I buy.
I'm guessing I'll save between $500 and $1000 a year.

Looks like Regal is touting their own big screen experience called RPX. http://www.bigscreen.com/journal.php...
We'll have to see how it compares to IMAX

They're just tired of paying IMAX maintenance and royalty fees. The RPX theater specs are essentially the same but Regal makes more money this way. Some info:
