Acme started out very modestly, with a 100 square foot space in the basement of an antique mall establishment in Alexandria. Within a short time, we had expanded beyond the basement and had a significantly larger footprint. In 2013, we opened our first retail Acme location, in Old Town. While quite small, the shop opened to an interior courtyard in which we could display some of our furniture.
In 2014, Acme moved to a much larger space on Royal Street. Our grand opening/ribbon-cutting ceremony included the Mayor and a City Council of Alexandria, and launched a new phase for Acme.
In 2017, Acme move to King Street, the main shopping and dining street in historic Old Town Alexandria.
In 2021, Acme closed the retail store and shifted to an online operation. The new web store is expected to launch in November or December of 2021.
