A family-owned organic grocery store on the H Street corridor is set to close down after about a year in business.
H Street Organic Market at 806 H St. NE will stop selling soy milk, kale chips and other organic foods tomorrow, workers at the store confirmed today. It wasn’t immediately clear what would happen to the space after the store’s departure.
A cashier, who declined to give her name for publication, said the market has been struggling since it opened last year.
“The people, they walk by and they aren’t interested,” she said while pointing out the window. “They think it will be too expensive.”
“It’s too bad because some of them could use it,” she added, referring to the all-natural health foods inside the shop.
The owner of the market couldn’t immediately be reached for comment.
The store is discounting all its products by 20 percent until it closes.
