GM heard a couple tips about two retail shops that he thought worth passing on:
- The Roots shop that GM reported on last week, is going into the space where Coach is (or was, GM’s not sure if they’re still open)
- Zara, which closed abruptly last month, is looking for a larger space in Georgetown. One possibility is the new building being built where the Latham Hotel was.
Coach to Roots seems like a step down for the space, and GM will miss being able to easily buy small gifts from the leather goods store. But it’s a new store for the area, so maybe that will be interesting?
It’s somewhat surprising that the old space wasn’t big enough for Zara, but apparently it was.
