ADC Mapstore Having a Going Out of Business Sale. Closing for Good Aug. 14

From an email:

“I work at a ADC Mapstore on 17th Street exit of the Farragut West Metro Station on the Orange and Blue line. We have been located in DC for about 40 years . We will be closing our doors next week on the Aug 14 forever. Most of our store is 50- 80 percent off.”

I always liked this store (1636 I Street NW). However, I always thought it must be tough for them to make enough sales to pay rent in a downtown spot like this. Very sad to see them go.

Ed. Note: I was graciously offered an extra discount, which I have declined.
