Alexandria’s Pier 1 Stores Closing By March

Everything must go! Numerous Pier 1 Imports stores will be closing in Virginia by the beginning of March, and that includes two Alexandria locations.

Staff at the Pier 1 at the Potomac Yard Shopping Center (3901 Richmond Hwy) are marking merchandise 20% to 40% off, and bigger discounts are expected in the days ahead. The store has two full-time and 12 part-time employees, all of whom were informed of the closing after the Christmas holiday.

The Texas-based company was founded in 1962, and announced earlier this month that it will be closing around 450 brick and mortar locations around the country — nearly half of its stores — as sales continued to dip.

“Although decisions that impact our associates are never easy, reducing the number of our brick-and-mortar locations is a necessary business decision,” Pier 1’s CEO Robert Riesbeck said in a statement. “We thank our team of hard-working associates for their commitment to Pier 1 and to serving our customers.”

The Pier 1 Imports online store locator no longer lists the locations that are closing around the country. There will be at least a dozen stores that will close in Virginia, according to Business Insider.

“We will definitely be here for the next couple of months,” said a Pier 1 staffer in Alexandria who could not disclose their name.

The Pier 1 at 4609 Duke Street will also be closing its doors, and the only locations in Northern Virginia that will remain open are in Fairfax, Woodbridge and Leesburg. Locations in Arlington and Bailey’s Crossroads are also closing.
