A Pittsburgh clothing shop that specializes in sporty gear and leisure wear for women is coming to The Shops at Wisconsin Place.
Gals on and off the Green will open next month said owner Jackie Sorrenti.
Sorrenti said she’s been looking for a retail location in the D.C. area for a little more than a year. She started the store in 2004 in Pittsburgh. The 5449 Wisconsin Ave. shop will be her second.
“When you’re looking at retail expansion, you’re always looking at demographics,” Sorrenti said. “There’s certainly a bigger population and a better climate.”
The shop of course sells golf gear — golf shoes, bags, gloves — catered to women. It also carries resort wear and a host of products, most with performance fabric, or a cotton blend, that Sorrenti said can be worn for a variety of functions.
“Most of what we sell can be used for sports, but it’s fashionable enough that you can wear it out to dinner or parties or a picnic,” Sorrenti said. “For the marathon women of today who leave the house at 7 in the morning and don’t get back until 8 in the night, it’s something for them.”
Contractors are wrapping up work on the inside of the store now. Sorrenti is waiting on a Montgomery County sign permit, but said there should be a soft opening by August 15.
