Thanks to a reader for sending word about Lacoste after 12 years. I also noticed that Buffalo Exchange had closed (after 4 years) too:

On the opening side an Aesop skin care spot is now in the former Subway sandwich shop at M and Potomac:

    This is a better location for Aesop. I wonder how well they’re doing at The Shay these days. Every time I’ve walked by it’s empty.

      The Shay does not have a location that results in a lot of casual shoppers. Warby Parker works because people go when they need/want glasses. I don’t think there’s a lot of “just browsing” in that area.
      .
      It also doesn’t help when half the apartments above aren’t rented and the ones that are are spending all of their disposable income on a rip-off apartment….

        Haha yes I get that and I agree that’s why I stated the Georgetown location is better.

    Didn’t the Barney’s recently close too?

  • i think the lacoste closure says more about the brand than the location itself. logo branded clothes like lacoste, polo, etc. aren’t doing so well these days.

  • Brett M

    I wonder if Lacoste will open near or at City Center.
