Bauer’s Optical is permanently closed in the West End

Bauer’s Optical at 4680 King Street is permanently closed.

The shop was broken into in January — one of many eyewear sellers that have been broken into this year across the region. About $17,000 in glasses was stolen from the store, which is located in the Shoppes at Summit Centre, a shopping center in the northwest corner of Alexandria.

There was another eyewear heist at a shop in Old Town in February, followed by $20,000 in eyewear stolen from a MyEyeDr store in Belle Haven in May.

Rappaport Co. is managing the Alexandria property, although the shop is still full of merchandise.

The phone number for Bauer’s Optical is now unlisted and the website has been taken down.
