What is the State of Retail in Arlington?

Despite seismic changes, the retail industry in Arlington seems to be doing well.  Is it?  And how are the independent mom-and-pop stores faring?  Join us as we hear two very different perspectives on this important topic. We'll be joined by Michael Stiefvater of Arlington Economic Development (AED) and Sasan & Nasrin Rashidi, owners of LA Moves, a women’s clothing store in Crystal City.
