Back in July 2015, Brookland lost an institution when the True Value Hardware store at the corner of 12th and Monroe closed after 40 years. Since then there have been rumors about what would take its place, but nothing definite looking till now. We recently noticed a sign for Nido Nursing Center on the still papered-over store windows. The website address listed didn’t yield any information, so we did some digging around on Facebook and found a page for Nido Nursing Center, which lists 3501 12th Street (12th & Monroe) as its location and announces in the post below that they are coming to Brookland.
The post says that they “…are aiming to open mid fall, early winter… if not sooner.” We were able to peek in and it didn’t look like they will meet that target. The space still looked pretty rough and gutted out, but had some wall framing up. We are curious about how pickup/drop off will work at such a busy intersection, but time will tell. We will keep an eye on things and let you know when we learn anything new.
