Swedish clothing chain H&M will open its newest DC store today (Aug 7) in Dupont. The 28,000 sq ft space, at 1133 Connecticut Ave NW, was previously filled by Filene's Basement.

They are offering these specials for tomorrow today only; from the Facebook page

Sweet Themez seems to have temporarily closed on 18th St NW in Adams Morgan. The lower level space at 2318 18th St NW is being advertised as for lease. Sweet Themez has posted a sign in the window indicating that they were moving, but not to where. If I find out more, I'll post it here. Sweet Themez specialized in custom cakes and cupcakes, but also make pies and cakepops. The vegan cupcakes were great, I hope they reopen soon!
