Thieves Market Antiques Leaves McLean

Local bazaar Thieves Market Antiques is pulling out of McLean and moving back to Old Town Alexandria.

Today (Tuesday) is the last day the store in McLean (6811 Old Dominion Drive) is open. By 11 a.m., much of the store’s merchandise had already been moved outside into a truck.

Cap Cohen, the owner of Thieves Market, said new developments are planned for the small shopping center where the store had been located and so he decided it was time to move.

“It’s been wonderful in McLean,” Cohen said. “A lot of good people. It’s been great here.”

The move back to Alexandria is something of a homecoming for the store. The store has hopped around from place to place across Northern Virginia since it was founded in 1952 and for several years, the store was located in Alexandria.

No specific location has been chosen, Cohen said they are currently deciding between two, but he said they are looking to open in around eight to 12 weeks — after giving the employees a little vacation first.
