The new Target is set to take up 17,820 square feet with additional space on the lower level. The store doesn’t yet have an opening date, but it will join the ranks of other small format stores like the first in College Park, MD, Rosslyn and the one that is set to open soon in Ballston.
Cleveland Park is actually set to get a new Italian restaurant. Cucina Al Volo, who has locations in Union Market and Adams Morgan, is moving in soon. The move-in is a welcome one, after many restaurants left the neighborhood in the past year.

Protecting your home from the winter months is vital. A winter storm or other severe weather conditions can cause real damage to your property. That's why it's very important to prepare your home for the next 4-5 months of snow, ice, and freezing temperatures.
Disconnect and drain all outside hoses, if possible, shut off outside water valves, to prevent hoses from breaking or even worse a busted spigot.

Double check downspouts and gutters for leaf build up
