Zara, the modern-chic destination for mostly millennial shoppers, closed its Georgetown outpost at 1238 Wisconsin Ave. NW on Good Friday, March 30.
The Georgetown store, which sold affordable men’s and women’s clothing and accessories, occupied a prime location on the corner of Wisconsin Avenue and Prospect Street. Just days before closing, it seemed to be buzzing with business and fresh shipments of merchandise.
No explanation was given for the closure, and calls seeking comment were not returned as of press time. Signage referred customers to locations in Bethesda, Maryland; Pentagon City and Tysons Corner, Virginia; and downtown Washington, D.C.
With more than 6,000 stores in nearly 90 countries, Zara is the main brand of the world’s largest apparel retailer, based in Spain.
