Logan Circle locals looking for ideas on how to remodel their homes will soon have a new store to visit.
An Ann Sacks tile and stone showroom will open on Monday, Jan. 11 at 9 a.m., according to a sign posted to the front door of the business. The store is located at 1629 14th St. NW, which is adjacent to Shinola.
When the store opens later this week, shoppers will be able to view products ranging from ceramic and tiles to plumbing fixtures for bathrooms and kitchens.
The store, located at 2410 18th St. NW announced its closure on Facebook earlier today.
“After more than ten years, Toro Mata will be closing our 18th Street shop on January 24th, 2016,” the announcement reads. (more…)
A San Francisco-based clothing retailer opened its doors on 14th Street last weekend.
Marine Layer, which bills itself as a “a San Francisco-based premium casual apparel brand,” is now open at 1627 14th Street NW.
The shop sells “absurdly soft” T-shirts, button-downs, sweaters, pants and accessories for men and women, and a sign near the door urges customers to “touch everything.”
Most of the company’s clothing sells for roughly $40 to $100, and is offered in offbeat sizes like “marge” and “larger.”
(Updated at 10:03 a.m. on Thursday) Men may once again gather at an infamous address in Logan Circle … only this time, they’ll be shopping for clothes.
Clothing retailer J. Crew has plans to open a new men’s only clothing store at 1618 14th Street NW next year, said J. Crew PR Coordinator Annabelle Javellana yesterday afternoon. The company had set a tentative date to open the new retail location in May, Javellana added.
Despite yesterday’s news of a confirmed opening, a company representative told us this morning that there had been “confusion,” and that “the fact that [J. Crew] is opening there is not confirmed.” The representative did not deny the store may open or say whether that means the company is also eyeing other potential locations.
The building, once known for housing the infamous “wrestling club” and “men’s parties” events, was partially demolished two weeks ago, and has been the talk of the neighborhood for years. A man died there in 2009, prompting the city to file suit to shut the sex club inside down.
In February, the Washington Business Journal reported that the building’s owner was issued a permit to rebuild and repair the bottom third of the building’s façade.
A San Francisco-based clothing retailer is set to arrive on 14th Street.
Marine Layer, which bills itself as a “a San Francisco-based premium casual apparel brand,” is slated to open a location at 1627 14th Street NW in the “last week of October or the first week of November,” said company representative John Ferrin.
A walk through the company’s website reveals “absurdly soft” T-shirts, button-downs, sweaters, pants and accessories for men and women. Most of the company’s clothing sells for roughly $40 to $100.
“We sell through our website and our retail stores in San Francisco, LA, Portland, Seattle, Chicago, NY and Miami (and expanding),” reads a recent Craigslist job posting. “We are a fast-growing company whose success has been built on a small, passionate team that works hard and has a lot of fun.”
Cell phone provider T-Mobile is trading one Connecticut Ave. NW storefront for another.
Moving crews could be seen earlier today removing boxes and retail fixtures from the T-Mobile store at 1330 Connecticut Ave. NW, and a sign on the door says the location is relocating to a space inside the office building at 1150 Connecticut Avenue NW.
The newly relocated store will open on Oct. 15.
Luxury brand Shinola announced today it will open its long-awaited 14th Street store on September 3.
Shinola is a high-end retailer that sells upscale — and pricey — leather goods, bicycles, watches and other accessories.
The 5,000-square-foot-store, located at 1631 14th Street NW, will “stay as true to the original build as possible, keeping the original black and white travertine floor, moulded ceiling and additional details from the era alongside traditional Shinola fixtures,” according to a press release.
Though the press release mentions the building’s original use as a Studebaker showroom, it does not mention the building’s most recent role as the Central Union Mission shelter.
Shinola’s temporary shop at 1534 14th Street NW will be occupied by Shinola’s sister brand, Filson.
