Dear PoPville – How Many Nail Salons Does One Neighborhood Need?

“Dear PoPville,

Saw this work permit on Sunday for a new nail salon in the Samuel Kelsey building at 14th between Park and Monroe. Also under construction is a nail salon one block away at 14th at Newton and there’s already one on Park and 14th, near Pho 14.

I’m a curious individual so I’m wondering how the neighborhood supports this many nail salons. Don’t get me wrong, I hope they are each successful, but that just seems like a lot. From a landlord’s perspective, I suppose they are just happy to be getting some rent payments.”

Ed. Note: Another new nail salon is coming to 1454 Park Rd, NW next to a nail salon.
