It is the end of our lease. It was a pleasure serving our customers, many of them who have been customers for years." According to wtop.com, "Forness is moving to Williamsburg to be closer to friends. She plans to do some traveling, she said. The store is holding a liquidation sale between now and its April 30 closing."
