Penn Camera's 18th Street NW location was closed on Wednesday, Jan. 4. Employees were packing up boxes inside and a sign on its door said, "This location is no longer open for business" and "Thank you for your years of patronage and support." (Photograph by Joshua Yospyn.)

"A dramatic decline in sales performance during the preceding holiday period has precipitated this action," the store's website states. Five locations were closed today.
