The effort to create a cluster of retail in the heart of Midtown is picking up three more shops set to open up over the next three months.

Walker Avenue between NW 10 and NW 13 already is home to Brown's Bakery, Trade Men's Wares, Chirps and Cheers, Beauty Lounge, the Hair Cafe, and the Black Scintilla, as well as restaurants Cafe do Brasil, Waffle Champion, Organic Squeeze, Stella's Modern Italian, 1492, Louie's, and James McNellie's Public House.
