Short Pump, Virginia
Beginnings & Endings

Beginnings: Apple's new entry into the information technology race — the iPad — premiers today. Customers set up their first-day purchases with the help of Mac personnel at the Downtown Short Pump Apple store ...

... Dianne sets up hers in a significantly quieter atmosphere at the Grind under the supervision of Sam.

Endings: The Ukrops supermarket in Short Pump that we have shopped since we moved here nearly 15 years ago closes tonight. It's the end of a 73-year, family-owned business. Nine days from now the store — and 26 others around the Richmond area — will reopen under the banner of the new corporate owner, Martin's Food Markets, which has stores in Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland and Pennsylvania.
