Any Alexandrian looking to get custom framing work done has a new option coming to Old Town.

DC-based Framebridge announced last Friday that a new store at 1308 King Street is opening on Saturday, Oct. 14.

The Alexandria store is the sixth location for Framebridge in the region and the 21st for the chain in-total.

The store offers in-person help with designing custom frames.

“We are incredibly proud to be opening a Framebridge store in Old Town Alexandria,” said CEO and Founder Susan Tynan in a press release. “Entering the Old Town market, which features a vibrant arts community and an abundance of rich history, has long been a goal of ours. We are thrilled to finally be able to open our doors and welcome in the community of Alexandria, celebrating the neighborhood’s story, one frame at a time.”
