Toucan Boutique Closing at 1911 9th Street, NW

Toucan Boutique opened up back in March ’10 at 1911 9th St, NW (just south of U St.) in the former Lettie Gooch space (now located at 1517 U Street, NW). I was sad to see for lease signs in the window yesterday. I spoke to the owner who said the space will still be open for a few more weeks and they’ll continue to do trunk shows. Down the road it is possible they may open another brick and mortar store. I think this is a big loss for 9th St, NW.

  • How much business do overpriced boutiques like this actually get? While I am sad to see a local business go, I can’t say I’m surprised.

    • I def agree. It was a cute store, cute concept, but $120 for a blouse? Not gonna cut it for a small boutique esp when I can go to Nordstrom Rack and get 3 things for $120.
