Barracks Row’s Homebody to Relocate Across from Eastern Market in September
by Larry Janezich
Henriette Fourcade, owner of Homebody, the popular contemporary living retail outlet on Barracks Row, has announced the store will relocate to the lower level of Forecast, the women’s clothes boutique, at 218 7th Street across from Eastern Market. Fourcade will be out of her current location by August 1, and hopes to open across from Eastern Market by September 1.
Homebody is closing the Barracks Row location at 715 8th Street, SE, to make way for a sister restaurant to Rose’s Luxury.
Fourcade says that Forecast’s owner, Debbie Danielson, called her yesterday and told her she could not imagine Homebody going out of business, and offered Forecast’s lower half to Fourcade. Homebody’s owner has been seeking space to relocate since February, when she learned her lease on the space would not be renewed.
