Commander Salamander boutique shutting its doors for the last time

Since the ’80s Georgetown boutique Commander Salamander, located on Wisconsin Avenue, has provided shoppers on a budget with affordable urban and street style clothes.  Nothing at the store was ever above $100.  I was saddened to hear that the store was closing in a couple of weeks.  After brunch at Peacock Cafe on Sunday, a couple of friends and I decided to stop in to see if we could get some summer dresses at liquidation prices.

Everything was on sale with additional 60 percent discount being offered. There were so many dresses and accessories for women and separates as well as button-ups, jeans, shoes and accessories for men. Though the staff told me they are not sure of the exact closing date, there was a  sense of melancholy as he told me their fate.  I feel a lot better knowing that most of the employees will be heading to other Up Against the Wall boutiques, since Commander Salamander is a sister company.

    OMG!!! Say it ain't so…. this was one of my favorite clothing spots in high school. Gosh this store brings back so many memories of skipping class and taking the short walk from D.E.S.A. to this store to find cool t's and accessories. Wow! I must head up there before it closes its doors forever. thx for sharing
