A liquidation sale is being held at the former Washington Golf Center store in Shirlington (2625 Shirlington Road).
The sale is being conducted by the building’s landlords, who said the owners of the store stopped paying their rent in October. According to one of the landlords, the owners of the store didn’t even declare bankruptcy, they just walked away from store, leaving the landlords “with all this stuff to get rid of.”
The owners of the store are also being sued by a golf equipment manufacturer who claimed they hadn’t paid for inventory since last April.
The sale, which is being promoted exclusively through Craiglist and word-of-mouth, is being held until 6:00 tonight and from 10:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Saturday. All sales must be paid in cash and are completely non-refundable.
As of 12:30 today there was still plenty of merchandise available for sale, although it was apparent some of the higher-end items had already been sold.
