Two New Children-Oriented Retail Outlets Coming to 600 Block of PA Avenue

The theme at 625 Pennsylvania will be child’s play …

…and child learning at 621 Pennsylvania.

Two New Child Oriented Retail Outlets Coming to 600 Block of Pennsylvania Avenue

by Larry Janezich

Two new child oriented retail outlets are coming to the 600 block of Pennsylvania Avenue, SE, this fall.  The former Mattress Firm at 625 Pennsylvania is scheduled to reopen as a children’s play and clothing outlet. Details are fuzzy, but what comes to mind is something like Skill Zone on Barracks Row with a retail clothing component.  A name and more information will be available by the end of September.

Also, Bourbon Coffee at 621 Pennsylvania is gone and Mathnasium – an internationally franchised math tutoring company – has taken over the space as of September 1.  The company will offer its proprietary Mathnasium Method, which their website says encompasses a complete curriculum from pre-kindergarten to 12th grade math and delivers a customized learning plan designed to address each student’s needs.  According to management, Mathnasium will open in November.  More info here:

    Sad to see that Bourbon coffee closed — loved that place especially the garden out back.

    These two businesses sound like welcome additions to the neighborhood.
