Longtime local furniture restoration and repair shop Spicer’s Upholstery, Inc has gone out of business after 63 years.
The business, which operated a physical location at 3649 Wheeler Avenue near the police headquarters but also made house calls, said on its website and in a voice message that it went out of business on Feb. 15.
“Spicers will be going out of business today,” a representative of the company said in a voice message on the company’s phone line. “We would like to thank everyone in the Alexandria metro area for allowing Spicers’ to provide furniture upholstery and repairs for over 60 years.”
The family-owned business had been open since 1957.
The closing was mourned on Twitter.
FYI #AlexandriaVA – Spicers Upholstery has CLOSED. Now where will everyone take their stuff to be redone?
