Bummer for shoe shoppers in Georgetown: You'll have to travel to Bethesda or Baltimore to get your Sassanova fix, because the Sassanova location at 1641 Wisconsin Avenue is no more. On September 20, the boutique posted this message on their Facebook page:
The good news, the bad news. Good news first-Sassanova has great stuff in store for 2014. Stay tuned to hear more soon?The bad news-we are closing our lovely Georgetown store for the greener pastures ahead.
The store confirmed on September 24 on Facebook that the Georgetown location is shuttered. And InTheCapital writes that the Georgetown closing sale was a doozy, with all shoes marked down to just $25. InTheCapital also notes Sassanova's revamped website and speculates that perhaps digital is a new priority.
