DC’s Last Blockbuster To Close on Barracks Row in Late August

Back in Nov. ’10 we learned that Capitol Video Sales would be closing at nearby 514 8th Street, SE on Barracks Row to make room for a new latin tapas restaurant to be called Pacifico. At the time I wondered when the bell would toll for the Blockbuster located up the street at 400 8th Street SE? Well we now know – mid to late August according to Barracks Row Main Street.

The space is around 4700 square feet and when asked what folks would like to see in the space on the Barracks Row Main Street facebook page the most popular answer? Trader Joe’s!

Personally I think a gym would do really well there.

Who do you think would be the best fit? A grocery store? A gym? Other retail? Or do you think there is enough room for another restaurant on Barracks Row?
