4200 Wisconsin Avenue, NW via Johnson’s
I am really sad to see Johnson’s leaving our neighborhood. They have been a great neighbor and having them within walking distance has just cheered me up so many times. What is AU doing with this property? They have let the Firelake Grill space sit dormant… Does this mean that they’re planning to do something more major with the site in general? Are other businesses in that complex (thinking particularly of Sullivan’s) in jeopardy too?”
Thanks to all who passed on from Johnson’s:
“To Our Valued Customers,
We truly regret to inform you that, after more than eighty-four wonderful years serving our community in and around the Tenleytown neighborhood, Johnson’s Florist & Garden Centers is closing our Washington, DC location on or before January 14, 2018.
This closure is a direct result of the significant increase in rent and other related fees of occupancy imposed upon us by the building’s owner. Despite months of earnest negotiation we have been unable to arrive at a mutual understanding with our landlord.
We look forward to continuing to provide you with the full florist and garden services in our Maryland stores that you have come to expect from our DC store.
Our Kensington store is poised to deliver our goods and services to all current DC-store serviced zip codes.
In addition, visit our Kensington and/or Olney stores and they will gladly provide you with 20% off your in-store purchases between January 15, 2018 and December 31, 2018.
Please visit our website at www.johnsonsflorists.com for details on our continuing commitments to you and learn how to get your 20% off discount.
With sincere appreciation for the privilege of serving you-
From all of us at Johnson’s”
