As everyone knows, the pandemic has been extremely difficult on small businesses, especially those in the food and beverage world. Plans to open our dream pizza shop were already in motion when COVID-19 struck, and despite uncertainty and the unknown, we trekked forward with our new adventure.
Over the past 9 months, it’s been our pleasure to dish out Detroits, round pies and all the water ranch your za-loving hearts’ desire. Unfortunately, Feb 6 will be our last day of service at this location. We hope you join us over the next few days and help give People’s Pie a proper send-off. We cannot thank you enough for all the support along the way!!
Big thanks to everyone who has joined us on this pizza journey, and remember, this isn’t a goodbye! We love the dough more than you know, so stay tuned for updates regarding potential pizza parties, pop-ups, and maybe even a new permanent home, from People’s Pie in the future. Cowabunga, dudes! #pizzaislife
June Richmond Greek Festival Canceled

Due to the ongoing COVID Pandemic, the Richmond Greek Festival scheduled for June 3-6, 2021 has been canceled. We begin preparations for our Festival months in advance and with the current health climate, we are unable to do that while adhering to health and safety regulations.
However, we’re not giving up just yet– we’re exploring options to bring you a version of the Richmond Greek Festival you know and love later this year. Please stay tuned to our website and social media for updates.
We wish our friends, family, and the Richmond community good health and safety during this time.
Richmond BizSense.com Reporting Chipotle and 36 townhomes Planned for Stratford Hills
The planned development would go into the area around the former tattoo shop near Publix and Mexico.
This bit of news comes to us from Richmond BizSense.com:
Harper Associates is planning an expansion of the Shops at Stratford Hills, a retail center the company developed in the early 2000s.
Plans call for a new retail building to be occupied in part by Chipotle, and, if approved by the city, 36 townhomes on a roughly 3-acre plot next door at 6935 Forest Hill Ave.
Most of the land eyed for the townhomes is currently wooded, and the former Lock Stock & Barrel Tattoo building that sits on the site would be razed to make way for a new 6,500-square-foot, drive-thru-ready outparcel.
There is a catch.
In order to move forward with the expansion, Harper is seeking to revise the conditional use permit it was granted from the city when initially developing the center. Its application was filed with the city last month.
