Ritz Camera Downsizing Downtown as Retail Juggling Continues on 1700 Block of L Street, NW

Back in October 2011 we learned that Verizon Wireless was moving next door to the former Spezie restaurant at 1742 L St, NW. This weekend I noticed signs went up announcing who will be moving into the former Verizon spaces. Turns out it will be a MyEyeDr:

and a Ritz Camera:

Of course there is already a large Ritz Camera at the corner of 18th and L St, NW:

When I spoke to folks at the corner Ritz location they thought the current store would be closed and they’d be moved into the new space by the end of March. The new space is about half the size of the current space. The downsizing of this Ritz follows the news of Penn Camera’s bankruptcy and closing not too far away at 1015 18th Street, NW.
