Nana Women’s Clothing Store Closing Brick and Mortar Shop in Mt. Pleasant

3068 Mt. Pleasant Street, NW

In 2011 Nana moved from U Street to Mt. Pleasant. Nana’s owner Jackie Flanagan shares some bittersweet news:

After 10 years as a brick and mortar clothing store in D.C., Jackie Flanagan is making changes to her business model for 2013. Flanagan will continue to design the Nana Clothing line produced here in D.C. and host numerous sales events but will close the brick and mortar store in Mount Pleasant.

“This is an extremely personal decision for me — one based on my desire to spend more time on my favorite aspects of the Nana business: designing the Nana line and planning fabulous shopping events! It is bittersweet to leave the brick & mortar environment after a decade, but I am excited to focus on the design and styling side of Nana and to stay connected to our wonderful community of customers through our events in 2013,” says Flanagan. She adds, “I love Mount Pleasant, and the Nana spot is a great one. I am excited to see what entrepreneur scoops it up and brings a new idea to the neighborhood.”

Flanagan adds:

“There is no firm closing date yet, but it will be between January 21st and 24th. Our Winter Clearance Sale is in full-effect. Stop by before your favorite styles (all on sale) are scooped up! Then the store will be all ready for our clothing swap on January 26th.”
