You have until Tuesday to buy a blended drink at Dupont’s Smoothie King. The national chain’s location at 1621 Connecticut Ave. NW is closing up shop.

“It is with heavy hearts to let you know that Smoothie King Dupont location will be closing its doors,” a sign in front of the business reads. “Our last day of operation ends on the 27th of September at 12:00 a.m. midnight.”

When asked why the location is closing, an employee at the store uttered one word: “rent.”

The smoothie shop opened its doors seven years ago. A PoPville reader first spotted the closure.

    I can’t read about Smoothie King without remembering that time a bunch of Walt Whitman football heroes faked an armed robbery, and made a Myspace (!) album called “We Robbed The Smoothie King.” Of course, mommy and daddy made sure they’d still get their precious football scholarships.
