Reston Pet Shop to Close Within Weeks

PetMAc/Courtesy of PetMAC(Updated at 1:45 p.m.) Reston is set to lose a pet supply store and adoption center in Lake Anne Plaza in the coming weeks.

PetMAC at 11412 Washington Plaza West is slated to close within the next month, an employee told Reston Now today. The shop opened two years ago.

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.

    I wish Cindy the best, and pray for her good health. Her presence on the Plaza has been a warm and welcome addition.
    Namaste Cindy… 🙂

  • Cindy is a true spiritual friend to Petmanity and all the rest of us. She brightens the world around her. Good Luck and twinkling lights. -Rick
