Knightsbridge Trading Co. to Close in Clarendon

A well-loved local gift shop will be closing this month in Clarendon.

Knightsbridge Trading Company has been in business for just over two years at 2871 Clarendon Blvd, after moving from Rockville. The store stocks a variety of gifts and goods, including hard-to-find European items.

Owner Murat Etili, a graduate of Washington-Lee High School, has told customers that the store has lost its lease and will close in about two weeks, around mid-January. A “big clothing brand” wanted the space and will be moving in, Murat reportedly said, but he declined to give additional details.

Knightsbridge is holding a closing sale, offering 65 percent off leftover Christmas items and 25 percent off everything else.

“It’s with sadness we announce our store closing as we have lost our lease,” the store said on Facebook. “We’ve loved being a part of the Clarendon and Arlington community and appreciate all of our wonderful customers! The whole store is on sale, so please come by and stock up!”
