Clothing and accessories store Francesca's is coming to Connecticut Ave NW. This is a chain I had never heard of, but they have over 600 stores across the U.S. This will be the third in DC, after stores recently opened in Union Station and Georgetown.
Francesca's is a mid-level price point women's clothing boutique-type store. They carry a lot of dresses in the $40-$50 range, but also carry accessories and home goods like cat-shaped coffee mugs, mugs printed with quotes about cats, cat spoon rests, cats watches, cat key chains, cat bottle stoppers, cat owner's manuals, cat umbrellas, cat picture frames, and of course, these cat socks.
Francesca's will be located in a 1,500 sq ft space at 1143 Connecticut Ave NW. This address was previously home to Godiva Chocolatier. The store should open for business before the end of 2015.
