‘World Market’ Closing at Pentagon Row With Big Sale

Cost Plus World Market (1301 S. Joyce Street) in Pentagon Row is closing, so if you need imported beer, woven baskets, Italian coffee flavoring or Stranger Things lollipops, get them while they last.

The store is scheduled to close by Sept. 27, according to a store employee, though he noted that if they sell out of most of their inventory before then they’ll likely shutter early.

The manager said the closure came amid lease negotiations for the location, and other nearby World Market locations made the store redundant. Employees were also overheard saying the impending arrival of Amazon likely played a role in driving up rents.

The next closest Cost Plus World Market is in Falls Church (3532 S. Jefferson Street).

Every item in the store is marked with at least a 10 percent discount as the store tries to empty its inventory.
