Nana Opens on Mount Pleasant Street

Photo from
Mount Pleasant's newest business soft opened this past weekend at 3068 Mount Pleasant Street NW. Nana, a clothing boutique, is not new; the store previously operated on U Street. They recently made the move to our fair neighborhood, joining a retail strip that is now slowly adding businesses after a few tough years during the nationwide recession. 3068 was, until last week, the home of the very successful Mount Pleasant Temporium.** And before that, Mount Pleasant Deli.

Nana traditionally has sold women's vintage and local handmade clothing, but will --in the larger Mount Pleasant store-- also sell children's clothing, more accessories, and furniture. I stopped by on Saturday and the space looks great. Still had the feel of the Temporium, actually. Which is a good thing. Very homey, familiar feel to the place.

The grand (re)opening will be this Saturday March 26, 4:00PM-7:00PM. Cool tip; all purchases will receive a free gift during that time.

**Turns out the Temporium produced $31,000 is sales from 1,030 customers over a 24 day run. Overall, nearly 7,000 people visited the storefront or attended Temporium programming. Success? Uh, yeah.
