The coronavirus pandemic has claimed another business in the Pearl District.

Popina Swimwear announced today it would not reopen its boutique on Northwest 11th Avenue near Everett Street, and will instead consolidate operations at its flagship location in the Hollywood District.

The Hollywood store is scheduled to reopen Thursday, May 28, with health and safety measures in place for both customers and employees. Only 15 shoppers will be allowed in at a time, dressing rooms will be wiped down with disinfectant after each use, and any swimwear that’s tried on and not purchased will be quarantined overnight before restocking. If you’re reluctant to spend too much time in a store to try things on, Popina will let you buy a suit and return or exchange it if it doesn’t fit. Online sales are ongoing, as well. read more

Fans of fashionable, locally made bathing suits will be sad to learn that Popina Swimwear—which has been in operation for the last 14 years—has been forced to permanently shutter their Pearl location due to financial complications from the pandemic. On a brighter note, their Hollywood location will reopen this Thursday, May 28.

“We’ve made it through some hard times, and this challenge has no doubt been the hardest,” said Popina founder Lulu Levenson in a press release Tuesday. “But we’re proud of the swimwear we’ve created at Popina Hollywood, and very proud that we have manufactured our swimwear in Portland since day one.” read more
