I was at the store this morning and noticed that a few new signs have been erected on Whipp Road. Believe it or not, we didn’t know a thing about this until a few days ago. If you’re a local who frequents our store, and especially if you’re coming in from out of town August 8-14 for the Stamping Gala leading up to the Cincinnati convention, you’ll want to pay close attention . . .
Some signs are already visible, while others are yet to be revealed. But they all mean the same thing – starting Monday, August 1, West Whipp Road will be closed FOR A MONTH from the Far Hills Avenue intersection past the first entrance to our parking lot.
Remember this picture from back in the spring, when Dorothy Lane Market across the street flooded during the heavy spring rains? The culvert that overflowed and caused this flood is going to be replaced. Unfortunately, nobody at the Montgomery County Engineer’s Office considered that our busiest week of the year might just happen to be the second week of August . . .
Sometimes a good map is worth more than a thousand words. So follow along while I describe your detour (there are a number of options, but this one seems to be the best if you’re not familiar with the area).
If you are coming north on Far Hills Avenue from I-675, turn left on Shadybrook Drive (it’s the next road past the entrance to Bethany Village). When Shadybrook deadends, turn right onto Flemington Road. When Flemington deadends, turn right onto Whipp Road and the entrance to our store will be on your left just past the firehouse and bank.
If you are coming south on Far Hills Avenue from Kettering, go past Whipp Road, then turn right onto Shadybrook Drive (about ½ block past KFC). When Shadybrook deadends, turn right onto Flemington Road. When Flemington deadends, turn right onto Whipp Road and the entrance to our store will be on your left just past the firehouse and bank.
