Embassy Camera Dupont

A longtime camera shop and photo supply store will leave Dupont Circle later this month.

District Camera — also known as Embassy Camera — is set to close its location at 1735 Connecticut Ave. NW by Aug. 20, according to store employee AJ Glover. He added that the store will reopen at another address in the District, but the store’s owner, Saed Taliverdi, has not yet decided where.

The shop will sell much of its merchandise at a discount until Aug. 20, Glover said. Cameras, lighting equipment, memory cards and flashes are all included in the storewide sale.

According to District Camera’s website, the family-owned company was founded in 1978 “on a foundation of excellent customer service and even better prices.”

The camera shop also has an outpost in Burke, Va.
