ALXnow’s top stories this week in Alexandria

Another week down at ALXnow. Intrepid reporter James Cullum has been out on vacation so it’s been an exhausting one-man show, but we made it to Friday.

The top story this week was a new Metal Supermarkets opening just west of the city.

Also sneaking into the top ten was the announcement yesterday that Deputy City Manager Laura Triggs, who has been in that role since 2014, will resign at the start of September to focus on career coaching.
