Books-A-Million near Dupont Circle will close on July 18, said assistant store manager Karen Sickles.
Sickles confirmed by phone this morning that the store lost its lease, but couldn’t say anything more about the situation.
“We’ve been here a long time,” Sickles says. “We’re sad to go.”
Sickles added the store, located at 11 Dupont Circle NW, is selling all of its remaining inventory at a 20 to 50 percent discount.
“This is our bye-to-D.C. sale,” she says.

Nader will sign copies of his latest novel, Return to Sender: Unanswered Letters to the President, 2001-2015, from 1 to 2 p.m at Books-a-Million, located at 11 Dupont Circle NW.
Nader will deliver a short talk before the book signing, according to his Facebook page.
Dave Calvin, an employee at Books-a-Million, said a line of people will form at a sectioned-off area in the center of the store prior to Nader’s arrival, but that getting there early isn’t essential.
