Discount grocer Aldi is remodeling its Washington Boulevard store and will reopen Aug. 28, the supermarket chain said today. The store will have more refrigeration space, higher ceilings and more natural lighting. The company, known for a low-overhead, store-brand strategy, has been refurbishing stores throughout the Baltimore area. The store at 3140 Washington Blvd. closed for the project on Aug. 3. "As important as price is, there's only one way to attract and keep shoppers: You have to have quality products," said Jeff Baehr, Aldi's Frederick division vice president.

This Saturday, Pigtown's proud, snouty namesakes will take to the street. More than a dozen oinkers will plod down Washington Boulevard twice that day, as part of the annual Pigtown Festival. It's a chance for the neighborhood to revel in its past - when pigs were driven down the roads to the slaughterhouses - and exhibit its growing development. This year, the festival outgrew its former venue on McHenry Street, and organizers moved it to the 700-900 blocks of Washington Blvd. "We felt that it would be appropriate that we move the festival to kind of the natural point of convergence for Pigtown, which is Washington Boulevard, which is the neighborhood's main street," said Jack Danna, the director of Pigtown Main Street, the organization that presents the festival.

When Lindsay Bramwell looks at 769 Washington Blvd. in Pigtown, she doesn't see the sad facade of a former variety store, its peeling beige paint and boarded-up door. Rather, it's a thriving business and residence, all glass and light and cutting-edge solar technology. People who live there dine at the restaurant downstairs and stretch in the rooftop yoga studio surrounded by a tranquil garden. With hopes that there are more investors who can see such potential in Pigtown's main commercial artery, the city has taken the drastic step of acquiring a dozen Washington Boulevard properties, its most sweeping use of eminent domain since its efforts to redevelop downtown's west side.
