One of the most exciting things to happen at Hats in the Belfry is the addition of a new shop to our family of stores. I am so excited to share some of the details of our National Harbor location opening in March!
National Harbor is located south of Washington DC on the Potomac River in Prince George’s County, Maryland. You can see a map here. It is a spacious development with a mix of hotels, condominiums, offices, shops, restaurants and green space. It is a beautiful location with a view of the District and Alexandria, VA across the river.
There is so much to do and see at National Harbor. There are over 24 restaurants offering almost every kind of cuisine you could ask for, a cruise line that will take you up and down the river and other water front activities like canoe and sailboat rentals. We are happy to be in the company of some great shops including South Moon Under (our next door neighbor), Fossil and Charming Charlie among many others.
Meeting our new neighbors is exciting, but not nearly as exciting as gaining a new Belfry team. We will be bringing on a new crew of sales associates that will be part of our Belfry family. We are sending our Annapolis shop Manager, Jen, to teach them everything she knows, which is quite a lot. Jen has worked in every shop location and trained all of our shop Managers including our E-Commerce General Manager. They will be in very good hands.
Right now we are hard at work tweaking our design and starting the build out. Here is a never before released preview of what our store front will look.
As many of our long time customers know, we used to have shops in Georgetown and Old Town Alexandria. The National Harbor store is the perfect location for our customers who frequented those locations and for all of our new friends in DC, VA and MD. We are so glad to be back in town!
