  • Where has Downs moved to?

    I have always had very positive and successful visits to Downs Stationers on L Street, NW in Washington, DC - for years! My only complaint was that it was too small and, therefore, everything was cramped together. If a product wasn't in the shop, it was always ordered for me. I always bought my Christmas Crackers there, besides unusual gifts, and cards. The website listed for them, apparently, the Downs family have no knowledge of the shop or the people who ran/owned the shop in DC. Does anybody know if they have gone out of business at all?

  • Very Unfriendly

    I went to Downs and was thoroughly disappointed. I popped in after Thanksgiving to buy some Christmas/Holiday gift wrap and the salesperson was almost annoyed that I was looking for wrapping paper. She gruffly told me that they didn’t have any wrapping paper yet. I explained that I don’t buy the standard paper for Christmas gifts – did she have ANY wrap? She was even more dismissive and said that she had TWO roles of paper and didn’t think that I would be interested in them – actually refusing to get them for me. I turned and left and will know to never pop in for anything in the future.
