Virginia Sees Some Closings, Including a Decades-Old Clyde’s

So long, farewell


There are some doors closing in Northern Virginia.

The Tyson’s Corner location of Clyde’s is closing in exactly one month, February 5th, to make way for a development in the area that will measure more than five acres, reports Washington Business Journal. This location of the restaurant was the first in Virginia, and opened 36 years ago.

Clyde’s Restaurant Group told WBJ that they’re sad about having to close, and recognize the spot as a crucial location for area power lunches. The Group also told the site that they’ll be offering employment to those working at the Tyson’s location at one of their other locations within D.C., Maryland or Virginia.

And now for more bad news: Menchie’s Frozen Yogurt — located at 2405 Columbia Pike in Arlington — closed on New Year’s Eve. A rep for the company told ARLNow that they just weren’t making money there. There’s another location on U Street.
