Del Ray Variety to Hold Grand Opening March 30
New store on E. Custis Avenue will hold "preview week" beginning Friday.
Del Ray Variety, a new store located just off Mount Vernon Avenue at 203 E. Custis Ave., is holding its grand opening on March 30.
Patch received a look inside the 4,000-square-foot space on Thursday as employees were putting merchandize on the shelves. The massive inventory includes kids toys, model planes and cars, arts and crafts, pet products, helium balloons, puzzles, greeting cards, candy, hardware, party supplies (including piñatas), office and school supplies, beauty products, bath and kitchen products and general home merchandise.
If you’re looking for items for your student’s diorama project or general craft supplies, Del Ray Variety is worth a look. If you need assorted baby items, glass jars, over-the-counter medications or fishing supplies (let’s think of a situation where one would need all four…), they’re on the shelves, too.
Del Ray Variety will be open from 9 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday and from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday. The property has 21 on-site parking spaces for customers, a rarity for Del Ray.
Management will begin opening the store for regular hours Friday, March 22, for a one-week “preview,” giving customers a chance to check out the store, offer feedback and meet the staff.
Del Ray Variety plans to get involved with this summer’s First Thursday street festivals and other events, management said.
