Bombe Chest Closing in Woodley Park

Bombe Chest is a located at 2629 Connecticut Ave, NW. I had not idea it was a volunteer store.

JSSA stands for Jewish Social Service Agency. Sounds like a great organization:

“Our wide range of counseling, educational and career services, in-home support, hospice and nursing care and social services are provided by our highly skilled and caring staff of mental health and nursing professionals. JSSA provides services and support for more than 25,000 individuals a year, from the very young to the very old.”

Unfortunately the store is closing July 17th and will not be reopening in a new location. If you’d like you can still visit the store – Sat., Tues., Wed., and next Sat.

At the end of May we learned that nearby Sake Club had abruptly closed 2635 Connecticut Ave, NW.
