Reston Town Center is a ‘Ghost Town’

Many businesses in Reston Town Center have closed in order to slow the spread of the coronavirus in Northern Virginia and beyond.

Readers have described the town center as a ghost town as an increasing number of businesses put up signs announcing temporary closures on their storefronts.

BowTie Cinemas closed yesterday (Monday), noting that it’s concerned for the “health and safety of our customers, staff members and the greater movie-going community.”

Few tenants indicate when they plan to reopen. But the Apple store says it will remain closed until March 27. J. Crew, Kendra Scott, and the Crafthouse are also temporarily shuttering.

Paddywax Candle Bar, which offers guests a chance to make candles in a workshop-style setting, is also closed for all workshops until March 30.

Reston Town Center tenants are encouraging customers and guests to find resources online.

While most retail tenants are closed, many restaurants and bars remain open for now.

Ted’s Bulletin is still open for dine-in, but with adjusted hours of 7:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sweetgreen is also open.

Morton’s The Steakhouse is also open, but is closely monitoring the situation.

Jackson’s is open and is offering more carryout options.

We will update this list as we confirm additional closures.
