The future of 14th St retail

Looks like 14th St NW just lost yet another unique retail store.

As was reported by 14th & You, Go mama go! - the housewares, accessories and gift shop, on 14th and S NW, will be closing in the coming months due to the economic recession and the death of its beloved owner, Noi Chudnoff.

The loss of Go mama go! is just one in a series of recent retail closings in the U St/Logan Circle area of 14th St. G Fine Arts, Garden District, Green Pets and Big Monkey Comics are all shuttering.

14th and You raises the question -- "can the neighborhood retain a mix of retail and other uses to go along with the exploding bar and restaurant scene?" For their take on what can be done to address this issue, check this out.
