Zazu gift shop closing its doors in Ashburn

After 20 years in business, one of the area’s oldest (and only) gift shops is closing up shop. Zazu — a store with a little bit of everything — will close by August 31, possibly sooner.

The owner of the shop, which is located in the Ashbrook Commons shopping center, has decided to retire in order to spend more time with family.

“We want to thank our incredible clients and customers who have supported us over the years, I am so grateful for them” said owner Marilyn Park. “The outpouring of love and support since announcing my retirement has been overwhelming, humbling and so appreciated.”

Zazu was founded in 2002 by Caroline Haddad. The original location was in Leesburg, but flooding at the shop led to a move to Ashbrook Marketplace in Ashburn. It was one of the first stores in the center when it opened in 2005. Park took over about eight years ago.

The lease on Zazu runs out at the end of August. A clearance sale has already begun at the shop and we’re told the store will stay open until the merchandise sells out or the lease ends.
