Acacia mid-town is closing at the end of service on Saturday, Feb. 8, but now there's a chance diners can own a piece of the award-winning restaurant.

Restaurant owners Aline and Dale Reitzer announced last month that their New American restaurant will close after 11 years at that location following the sale of the building at 2601 W. Cary St.

The one-level building with 4,761 square feet sold Jan. 16 for $1.18 million, according to the city’s online property records. The city assessed the property in 2020 for $850,000, the records show. Acacia Development LLC bought the building for $375,000 in late February 2008.

The couple plans on opening another restaurant at some point, Aline Reitzer told the Richmond Times-Dispatch last month.

And now, next week, Acacia is having a yard sale following the restaurant's closure.

"We will be selling: WINE, plates, glasses, tables, chairs, decor, and much, much more," Acacia wrote in its email newsletter to diners.
