1226 Connecticut Ave, NW

Yesterday I noticed that an Aveda Salon would be replacing the former Kid’s Closet at 1226 Connecticut Ave, NW. Later I received the following email:

“Dear PoPville,

A recent WaPo article attests to what we see every day: a baby boom in the city. What I haven’t seen is an accompanying boom in stores serving these parents – baby boutiques, clothing stores, etc. I’m (very) happy that I have low cost options like Target and Children’s Place around the corner in Columbia Heights, but when I google “baby gifts” for DC, I get very, very little. I wanted to buy a nice gift for a friend recently, and there were literally no options nearby in 14th/U/AdMo/CoHi/Petworth. I smell a business opportunity…do you think so?”
