More information on the future of City Sports locations in Greater Washington is trickling out, as it appears the Georgetown location at 3338 M St.NW is slated for closure.
A “store closing” sign appeared on the Georgetown location this week. A clerk at the store said Friday the location's last day would be Oct. 26.
The Boston-based athletic apparel and equipment retailer has 26 stores in all in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic, seven of which are in Greater Washington. In addition to the Georgetown store, the location at Pike & Rose in Rockville and the one in downtown Silver Spring, will also close, according to Bethesda Magazine.
We’ve reached out to City Sports for more information on planned D.C.-area closures. Back in September, a spokeswoman for the brand said the Bethesda location would remain open.
In addition to Georgetown, there are two other locations in D.C.: one on 19th Street NW near Dupont Circle and one in Chinatown. The only Virginia location, at Mosaic District in Merrifield, just opened in September.
