Clarendon’s LOFT store is expected to close next month.
The women’s clothing store in The Crossing Clarendon — formerly known as Market Common Clarendon — is expected to close on Monday, July 18, according to a sign on the store’s door.
Store staff received the closing notice around two weeks ago, an employee told ARLnow. The store began notifying customers of the closure around a week ago.
“We got about a month’s notice of the store closing,” the employee said.
The decision to close was not made at the local store’s level and those working at the Clarendon location did not know much about the decision, the employee added.
“We just really find out that ‘the store’s closing at this day and this is what you have to do to close it down’ pretty much,” the employee said.
A paper sign announcing the closing date is taped to the store’s front door. Similar signs are placed on several display tables inside, as well. Currently, the store is in the midst of a July 4 sale, giving out a 40% discount to purchases.
As of publication time, a leasing agent for the shopping center has not responded to questions about the future of the storefront.
The Clarendon store is one of two LOFT stores in Arlington. After its closing, the only location in the county will be at Westpost — formerly Pentagon Row — at 1101 S. Joyce Street. There are no plans for the Clarendon location to move, we’re told.
LOFT’s corporate communications department declined to comment on the closure, stating it has a policy of “not providing comment on individual store openings or closings,” describing them as “a natural and ongoing function of doing business in retail.”
