Washington Market, the downtown convenience grocery, will close its doors after a clearance sale.
Owner Michael Khoury announced the news Oct. 2 on the market's Facebook page.
"This week will be our last, as we will be closing The Washington Market after lunch on Friday," he wrote. "We've been a part of this growing downtown area for a decade and it's been a great ride. There's too many thoughts and feelings to express but, in short, we feel lucky to have gotten to know so many of the residents and workers in the area and will miss you all dearly."
Khoury took over the market, at 461 Ellicott St., in 2016, expanding its line of groceries, practical items for downtown dwellers, and beer.
"Come say hello this week and grab a breakfast sandwich or smash burger, perhaps." Beer goes on sale too.
The market will reopen at another location, Khoury wrote.
