From a press release:

“Shinola, known for its Detroit-built watches, bicycles, journals, pet accessories, small leather goods and leather care is excited to announce the upcoming opening of its third nationwide flagship in Washington, D.C. The store will open September 2015 in the 14th Street Corridor at 1631 14th Street NW.

The 5,000-square-foot corner building was originally home to the Studebaker showroom in the 1920s. The store design will stay as true to the original build as possible, keeping the original black and white travertine floor, moulded ceiling and additional details from the era alongside traditional Shinola fixtures. In partnership with Washington Project for the Arts, Shinola will also showcase local artists during quarterly exhibitions in an in-store gallery.

The opening of the D.C. store will mark the brand’s tenth brick-and-mortar location. In addition to stores in Detroit and New York, Shinola has locations in Minneapolis, London, Los Angeles, Chicago, Ann Arbor and Plano. The new D.C. location will replace the temporary shop that opened in November 2014. Filson, Shinola’s sister brand, will take over Shinola’s former space at 1534 14th Street NW.”
