July a Big Month for Retail Openings, Closings
The end of July is a busy month for possible openings and closings in Georgetown. Check out this list of retail changes in the area.
Tenative Store Openings:
Calvin Klein Underwear
Georgetown may see a store dedicated entirely to men's underwear move into the building which used to inhabit The Body Shop at 3207 M St., according to the Georgetown Metropolitan. Only one other Calvin Klein Underwear store exists in the U.S., but there are over a dozen in Hong Kong.
The store is a more modish and younger version of the parent store Crate and Barrel, leaning toward more modern furniture. CB2 is still negotiating its move into Georgetown with EastBanc. If the store gets the go-ahead, it will occupy a space at 3307 M St., next door to the temporary Georgetown public library, and could open as early as 2011.
British clothier Allsaints may replace Club Monaco, 3253 M Street, according to the City Paper's Lydia DePillis. Allsaints currently has no stores in D.C. but is already in Boston, New York, Miami, Chicago, San Francisco, L.A. and Santa Monica.
Georgetown Belle Pet Boutique
A local pet store is closing its doors just a few months after its opening on P Street. Todd Walderman purchased the pet store, which was originally on O Street, in 2009 and renamed it the Georgetown Belle Pet Boutique. The store offered anything related to pets and even had pet salon services.
