Corner store and cafe Foxtrot is opening today (Thursday) in Old Town.

The company announced in a release that their first Virginia location opened this morning at 701 King Street. The new Alexandria location is the trendy corner store’s 18th location, with others in D.C. as well as Chicago and Dallas. There are a handful of events and specials planned throughout this weekend to celebrate.

  • The first 500 shoppers at the store today will receive a custom tote bag with treats inside
  • Tomorrow (Friday), customers paying with the Foxtrot app can get 50% off select wines
  • Saturday, customers paying with the Foxtrot app between noon and 2 p.m. can get $2 off any cafe or grab-and-go item

According to an email from the store, the space has been rehabbed with a two-story storefront, with mezzanine seating and shopping areas and an elevated cafe. The release noted that the beer and wine selection will include Alexandria-based breweries like Port City.

“We’re thrilled to continue our expansion in the DMV area with our Old Town Alexandria opening,” said Mike LaVitola, co-founder of Foxtrot, in the release. “Alexandria is an active, vibrant and creative community that celebrates art, food and supporting local, which is what we’re all about at Foxtrot. We look forward to joining the neighborhood and inviting even more locals to dine and shop with us.”
