ALXnow’s top stories this week in Alexandria

In some ways, it wasn’t a great week for shops around Alexandria.

Three Alexandria stores had drivers crash into them this week. At the Bradlee Shopping Center, a driver was hospitalized after she drove her car into Robcyns. The next morning, a driver crashed into Casa Rosada Artisan Gelato in Old Town.

But while both of those incidents seem like accidents, would-be thieves crashed a truck into a CVS in Del Ray and tried, unsuccessfully, to steal the ATM.

On the bright side, things seem to be going well at Chadwicks in Old Town, so we’ve got that going for us.
