Dear PoP – What’s Going on with Columbia Road?


“Dear PoP,

Have you heard what’s going on with the building next to Safeway on Columbia Road, near 18th? The Popeyes, beauty supply store, and other stores have all closed down. I’m guessing it was sold? I doubt the Popeyes went out of business, they always seem to be so busy.”

Yup, it’s going to be a CVS. Kristen Barden from Adams Morgan BID wrote me that:

“Combined Properties ( is combining all of their stores along that stretch – Popeye’s, the beauty supply store, Citibank, etc… and the CVS on the south side of Columbia Road will move over there. I also don’t know what will go in the old CVS space yet…”

Now, I’m curious what will go into the old CVS spot.
