Outline of building visible from street.
It's beginning to look a lot (a little?) like Costco! On a bit of a drizzly day Thursday, construction workers building the new Costco off of Richmond Highway were hard at work, erecting the shell of the building. Dozens of white girders and beams are erected across the lot of the soon to be mega-warehouse store, which is located at 7940 Richmond Highway. Unconfirmed reports put the opening date in early August. Costco is currently looking to fill a variety of positions.

After 20 years on WRQX, the station pulls the plug on popular morning radio program.
For those who listen to Mix-107.3 FM, "Love your show babe," was the signature sign-off for morning show host Jack Diamond and it was also how listeners signed off when calling in to the show. Loyal listeners may have noticed that Diamond was missing in the mornings the past two weeks, replaced temporarily by various hosts. But Diamond's not on vacation — he's off the station for good, according to the station.

Will you listen to the new syndicated show taking its place? Take our …
Station's promos for replacement program feature jokes about adult films, bodily functions.
For more than 20 years, Northern Virginians in the DC region faithfully tuned in to hear the "Jack Diamond Morning Show" on MIX 107.3. The show's mix of popular music, Washington-area news, Hollywood gossip and bantering among co-hosts eased drivers into their mornings and kept them company in DC's notoriously long morning commutes. One of the things listeners say they liked most about the show was that it was a "clean" program they could listen to when their kids were in the car, especially driving them to school. Anne wrote on Diamond's Facebook page: "My tween and I both enjoyed listening to you on the way to school." After Diamond's show was unceremoniously pulled from the air by Cumulus Media more than two weeks ago, a series of …

What would you like to see in this vacant storefront?
This storefront previously housing Tubby's Chili Parlor is located in the Cooper Square Shopping Center at 8723 Cooper Rd. Tubby's Chili Parlor recently closed. Patch reviewer McFarland brought the closure to our attention, saying "It was rainy and cool last night (6 May 2013) and I wanted a chile mac. So I wandered over to Tubby's but it appears they are permanently closed. What happened?" The owner of sister restaurant Johnny Mac's Rib Shack did not return phone calls from Patch. Readers, what would you like to see at the former Tubby's Chili Parlor location? Perhaps a new Italian restaurant or an independent coffee shop? Tell us in the comments below.
