Businesses & Neighborhood Opposition/Support
DCist posted a story about the closing of N-A-Minit conveniance store (near Lincoln Park). The closing follows the recent closing (under great community pressure) of the notorious Excello Liquors. The story is short, but it touches on many of issues we are currently dealing with on H Street. Particularly, the article cautions against being too quick to issue blanket judgements against business types (for example, those with alcoholic beverage licenses) without looking at individual business owners. One notable difference is that the vacant space in the article will soon be replaced by condos...on H Street, a vacant space is likely to remain vacant (at least for the present).
