It seemed as we all could have guessed that this was coming. The Family Dollar at the corner of Rhode Island Ave NE at Thayer Street was ordered closed by the DC Dept of Health today because the store posed an iminent health hazard to the general public.
This particular Family Dollar has not been the model of cleanliness over the years and from the appearance of its parking lot and front side walk, they have not taken any pride in its image in this regard. I am happy to see that the DC Dept of Health actually pays attention to this “far end” of the City and holds those that sell food accountable for our health.
Any guesses on the specific violations?
