OUT: BROOKS BROTHERS SKIPS TOWN
Another sign of our COVID-19 times on March 29 and 30, as large moving vans were filled with the remains of the Brooks Brother store at 31st & M Streets NW. Its sign at 3077 M St. NW was removed. Brooks Brothers did not respond to press inquiries. Neither landlord EastBanc nor the Georgetown Business Improvement District was alerted to the exit by the company.
IN: SOME RESTAURANTS STILL OPEN FOR TAKEOUT
While a few businesses remain open on M Street, such as Thunder Burger (takeout and
delivery only), Moby Dick, America Eats (meals for the needy) and even Georgetown Tobacco, another reopened for takeout: Boulangerie Christophe on Wisconsin Avenue. Contact your favorite eatery for details — many are still open — and support local businesses with real cash.
