    Hopefully taken down for good and not just to get the mispelling corrected

    DCRA tweets:

    “We issued a citation to the prop owner for installing an electrical sign w/o the required electrical permit.”

    Additionally, I think there were issues related to having the right license. On 2/27 Muriel Bowser wrote the following:
    “Neighbors- I have been in contact with the Director of the Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs (DCRA). DCRA has not received an application for a pawn broker’s license at 3714 14th St, NW. Once an application is submitted, DCRA must give notice to the affected ANC.

    If the shop opens without a license, DCRA can force them to come into compliance, as they do not have the authority to shut a business down. I will continue to work with you, the ANC Commissioners and DCRA to ensure the application and enforcement process is followed closely.”

    I’d be more than happy to see this place never open. Was super sad to see that Utopia Nails had closed though. I was just in there last Thursday and when I walked by this past Tuesday everything was gone. :(

      Oh no! I saw all the newspaper up, but that’s too bad. They were never terribly busy but I thought they had a steady stream of customers. I wonder when the nail salon a few blocks south will open up,.

    speaking of that block, I thought I saw a “for lease” sign up on the spot at the end of the block. I had though that was going to become a restaurant or bar.

    The PIVS DRCRA database shows a pawnbroker C&O approved on 1/22 and permit for construction of new sign on 2/25. They also have a permit for some interior work….

    Maybe they’ve changed their mind and have decided to instead open a free-range wine shop that sells kites out of the back room.
