A Jackson Ward beer store is shutting its doors.
The Hoppy Dog, at 319 Brook Road, announced recently that its last day of operation will be March 2, according to a message on its website.
The store opened just over a year ago. It sells craft beers, wines and gourmet foods.
“We wanted to write a note of thanks to those who supported our store over the past year and a half,” the shop wrote on its site. “Starting a business in downtown Richmond was a new venture for us, and we opened our business with the most positive of intentions.
“It was a wonderful experience and we made many new friends through the store. However, at this point, we have decided to pursue different avenues of profession.”
Hoppy Dog owner Jamie Turko declined to comment.
