Layoffs at The Alexandrian and Other Businesses Across the City

As the coronavirus pandemic keeps businesses closed for longer periods of time, several around Alexandria have filed closing and layoff notices to the state citing COVID-19.

The Alexandrian, a hotel at 480 King Street, was forced to lay off 115 staff, according to the Virginia Employment Commission.

Other locations in Alexandria facing layoffs include:

  • Paper Source (118 King Street) — a decorative paper and supply store in Old Town. The store is temporarily closed and 44 employees have been laid off
  • Alsco (725 S. Pickett Street) — a branch of the linen and uniform-rental business located in the West End; 102 employees have been laid off
  • Enterprise Holdings (4700 Eisenhower Avenue) — a location in the car rental service Enterprise laid off 77 employees between the Alelxandria and the Dulles locations.
  • Jim Koons Automotive Companies (5800 Edsall Road) — the Jim Koons car dealership laid off 148 employees across Alexandria, Arlington, Falls Church, Sterling, Vienna and Woodbridge.

Alexandrians throughout the city have been filing for unemployment in record numbers, with nearly 7,000 claims as of last week since the pandemic started.
