Wow, I was surprised to see this – Eater DC reports:
Khalil Ghannam, owner of the coffee shops, confirms that they had to close the NoMa location this morning — for good. While Pound had every intention to keep both locations running, he says, issues with the landlord proved too difficult.
Their Facebook page says:
“For our NoMa regulars, we really apologize for the lack of notice as things did not work out as planned on the logistics side of things…but Pound NoMa is no longer open, but the friendly staff is all working at Pound The Hill! We love all of you and you are amazing customers. We hope you can venture to the other side of the Hill to see us soon.”
Pound NoMa was located at 1300 2nd St NE. Their new location on Capitol Hill is located at 633 Pennsylvania Ave, SE – we took a look earlier this month – early reports say that the shop was smashed crowed this weekend.
