“Yang Market has been the cornerstone of Eckington for over 70 years. Located at the corner of Summit & U Streets NE, the store opened in the 1940s as one of many District Grocery Stores (DGS) operating throughout the region.

Ed. Note: Shop Made In DC just opened a Georgetown location over the weekend and they also have a location at the Wharf in SW Waterfront. They also run the DC History store in the Carnegie Library (colocated with the new Apple store.)

“As you know, the lease for our beloved Dupont space is ending on August 31. We are sad to have to leave, but the building is under new ownership and will be in renovation mode for the next year. As much as we have loved our time we are also ready for new adventures.

Up until last week we thought we were moving North of Dupont Circle. On Friday morning, after 2 months of negotiations and planning (on the day we were set to sign) we lost the lease to our new Dupont location.

Our goal is still to relocated Dupont and we need your help. Our mission is built on the concept that we are stronger together so it seemed silly to hold this information and burden in confidence. We need your help.

We are seeking a new space to move our Dupont home. Read More
