Nana Vintage Moving to Mount Pleasant

Soon to be Nana clothing boutique
A bit of pretty awesome for Mount Pleasant Street: Nana boutique is moving into the neighborhood! TBD reported yesterday and the store's owners also announced that they're relocating to 3068 Mount Pleasant Street NW. 3068 was most recently occupied by Mount Pleasant Deli.

What great, great news! We have seen some retail movement on Mt P Street this year: new facades on businesses, changing hands of Old School Hardware, opening of Revo Nails and the temporary Mount P Library. But Nana is a high profile addition. They were successful on U Street and became part of a collection of indie retail stores on the 1400-1600 blocks. They helped keep U Street a daytime shopping destination while supplementing its reputation as a restaurant and club spot.

Nana will relocate to 3068 Mount P St after the new year. The new space is about 1,000 square feet and is bordered by Mayflower Chinese Restaurant and Ercilia's Restaurant. The 42 bus and SB Circulator stop directly across the street, and there is already another clothing store, Frugalsita, located at the same intersection. With the extra space, it's possible Nana will offer more than clothing; possibly furniture and an expanded selection of other items (bags, jewelry, shoes). 

Excellent news to end the week with and I look forward to the opening in early 2011!
