JUST IN: Foxtrot has closed in Rosslyn

The upscale market Foxtrot has closed its Rosslyn store permanently as the company shuts down.

The Chicago-based operator of dozens of Foxtrot and Dom’s Kitchen and Market stores said today that is closing all locations effective immediately, including in Alexandria, D.C. and Bethesda. The closures came as a surprise to customers and employees.

“We were just told that all stores were closed effective immediately, to lock up and leave,” one employee told PoPville, which was first to report the news locally. “Our store managers had no idea and were immediately laid off as well.”

A customer told ARLnow that he grabbed coffee from the Rosslyn store this morning, while it was still open.

Foxtrot’s now-closed location in Rosslyn, at 1771 N. Pierce Street, opened in January 2023. A second location planned in Ballston, across from the mall, will evidently no longer open.

More on the closures, below, from a statement posted on the company’s website and on social media.

Dear Dom’s Kitchen & Market and Foxtrot Customers,

It is with a heavy heart that we must inform you of a difficult decision we have had to make. After much consideration and evaluation, we regret to announce that Foxtrot and Dom’s Kitchen & Market will be closing their doors starting on April 23, 2024.  The closure affects 2 Dom’s stores and 33 Foxtrots across Chicago, Austin, Dallas, DC areas. We explored many avenues to continue the business but found no viable option despite good faith and exhaustive efforts.

This decision has not been made lightly, and we understand the impact it will have on you, our loyal customers, as well as our dedicated team members. We want to express our sincerest gratitude for your support and patronage throughout the years. It has been our highest honor to elevate the everyday and create a remarkable shopping experience for people who love food as much as we do.  It has been a privilege serving you and being a part of your everyday lives.

We understand that this news may come as a shock, and we apologize for any inconvenience it may cause. We genuinely appreciate your understanding during this challenging time.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you for your loyalty and trust in Dom’s and Foxtrot. It has been an honor to serve you, and we will cherish the memories we have created together. We would also like to thank our team members who have committed themselves over the years to providing a unique selection of quality foods and creating an outstanding in-store customer experience. Lastly, we would like to thank our many partners, without whom we would not have been able to build such a strong brand.
