Jonathan Adler to Close April 21

The Jonathan Adler store which opened in Georgetown in 2012 will close at the end of Easter Sunday.

“I’m sure stories like this are a dime a dozen lately, but our store at 1267 Wisconsin Ave. NW is closing,” Alex Sceery, store manager of Jonathan Adler, told The Georgetowner. “Our last day of business will be April 21st. I am selling off everything in the showroom at 30 percent off … want to give everyone a chance to come in and say goodbye to our wonderful store and team.”

The maker and purveyor of ceramics, pillows, accessories and furniture — with a sophisticated design attitude — is located at the corner of Wisconsin Avenue and N Street, across from Martin’s Tavern.

The Adler whimsy and practicality was put on full display throughout the large store, which shows off a Washington bust of sorts and D.C. pillows. Designer and potter Jonathan Adler opened his stores — which will soon number one fewer than 17 — in the late 1990s.

    The Georgetown Wisconsin Avenue retail scene is bleak. The number of empty stores and boarded up windows is depressing. Is the problem overly aggressive landlords seeking unrealistic rents? Or is the bloom finally off the rose in Georgetown, except for stretches of M Street? What is the solution?

    Jonathan Adler is a little too gaudy I believe though it may be an issue with the rent being high. Not to mention home decor and furniture has not been doing well in Georgetown especially on Wisconsin Ave. Restoration Hardware, american/holiday, now Jonathan Adler? Seems like a solid trend to me.
