Owner Cindy Williams said in an email that she is no longer able to manage the store due to illness. Her landlord is helping her look for a new business to take over the space, allowing her to get out of her lease early.
Williams left a corporate career to open her first PetMAC location in Arlington more than 11 years ago. That store closed at the end of 2014. A PetMAC under different ownership remains in D.C. on Wisconsin Avenue NW.
Williams told Reston Now in 2014 that the lake-front location within walking distance of hundreds of dog owners was ideal for her.
At PetMAC, customers can buy pet food, toys and accessories, in addition to adopting pets. A portion of the store’s proceeds go to animal rescue groups.
Before PetMAC closes, the shop is having a clearance sale of up to 50 percent off everything, according to its Facebook page.
