Washington, DC

“Dear PoPville,

What was originally supposed to be Joseph A. Banks, men’s clothier, will now be Yes! Market on the corner of 8th and Pennsylvania Ave. SE [514 8th Street, SE]. This was previously a Blockbuster. I wonder if the current Yes Market located between 6th and 7th and Pennsylvania Ave. will be closing. Any word on that?”

Wild. I spoke to an employee at the YES! store located at 658 Pennsylvania Ave SE and they say the Barracks Row location will be open in about six months. She also believes that the 658 Pennsylvania Ave SE store will remain open as well. Barrackrow.org now says:

“Yes! Organic Market announced today that they are relocating from their current Capitol Hill location at 658 Pennsylvania Avenue, SE to the former Blockbuster Video space on Barracks Row at 410 8th Street, Southeast.”

So if you live on Capitol Hill you’ll have lots of options to get your YES! Organic Market goods. Think the neighborhood can support the two stores?

Anyone disappointed that the Jos A Bank didn’t come through?
