After months of canvassing neighbors and businesses in Del Ray, the Del Ray Variety Store held a grand opening on Saturday morning, March 30. The canvassing was the brainchild of the owners — to find out what the neighborhood lacks in goods and supplies. The focus is on fun and convenience, something for everyone to enjoy: children’s toys, arts and crafts, pet products, helium balloons, greeting cards, hardware, and party supplies. Also in the inventory are office and school supplies, beauty products, bath and kitchen products, and general home merchandise and candy. The store is independently owned by Jennifer and Erik Dorn.
Free parking is available for 21 cars next to the store at 203 E Custis Ave. Call the store at 703-683-2418 or visit http://delrayvariety.com.
