Avenue Jack Closing Soon in the former Copenhaver space; Copenhaver reopening in the former Smoothie King space North of the Circle

1301 Connecticut Avenue, NW

Thanks to Jake for sending word from Avenue Jack’s closing announcement:

“I thought you should know right away: my experiment in upscale-casual men’s clothing is coming to an end soon. Avenue Jack is closing for good in early-2017.

The good news is, we’ve got some amazing sales going on, including 30% off everything in the store this week.

The bad news is, you’ll have to go back to shopping online or at one of those other, less-cool stores in town. And I’m super sorry about that.

We had an amazing run and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for supporting a small, locally-owned business. Dale and I certainly had a ball picking out our eclectic mix of casual clothes, accessories, and gifts, and I still believe we were on to something great. Heck, The Washington Post, the City Paper, Metro Weekly, Tagg, Washingtonian, and many other publications agreed that we created something special.

And so did you! And thank you so much for that.

But it all comes down to traffic. Unfortunately, the level doesn’t justify our rent. And while we enjoyed a brisk holiday business last month, it would be financially imprudent to wait to see if people eventually find us the rest of the year.”

And, incidentally, thanks to another reader for sending word about Copenhaver reopening:
