Tari Boutique to Close Aug. 31; Sale on Now
Tari D.C. Boutique-Couture Consignment, opened by owner Sara Mokhtari in November 2010 at 1525 Wisconsin Ave., NW, will close at the end of Sunday, Aug. 31.
"We regret to inform you that Tari will be closing its doors," Mokhtari wrote to her clients. "The building is under new ownership, and they plan to occupy the space for a different use. Due to the limited notice we received, we have not secured a new place as of yet. We have been diligently looking for a smaller space in Georgetown as well as other areas in the city . . ."
"After four years of tears and sweat yet still lots of laughs, I'm taking a little break," Mokhtari further wrote to her friends on Facebook. "I've sold my building and will keep you posted on my future plans. Please stop by Tari."
Having renovated and redesigned the property, Mokhtari said that she received an offer she couldn't refuse. She did not reveal who the new owner is -- or if it is a retail business.
Meanwhile, the owner of the sophisticated shop and ultracool space is putting most of everything up for a blowout sale at Tari: dresses, gowns, accessories, jewelry -- and, for the guys, suits and shirts. Some fixtures are up for grabs, too.
The event space above the main shop -- which is part of the sale -- will honor already scheduled events, Mokhtari said.
