Homebody, a high-end home goods store formerly located on Barracks Row, is slated to reopen at its new location across from Eastern Market within days.
The new Homebody will be in the lower level of Forecast, a clothing boutique at 218 7th St. SE. Both Homebody and Forecast have been closed this month as Homebody has moved into its new space.
Forecast owner Debbie Danielson said the clothing store will open Friday and Homebody could open that day, too.
Homebody owner Henriette Fourcade could not be reached immediately for comment. But her shop’s voice mail says the store will reopen on Sept. 1.
Danielson said the move-in has gone “beautifully.”
“They’re wonderful neighbors,” she said.
Danielson and Fourcade, who are longtime friends, agreed to move Homebody into the sunlit basement of Forecast after Homebody’s lease ran out at their former location. That location at 715 8th St. is set to be the site of Pineapple and Pearls, a new restaurant from the owner of Rose’s Luxury.
