Update since paid parking was implemented, working mostly from memory so it is possible I missed a few on either side (not intentional).

Williams Sonoma

M&S Grill

Paolos, then remodelled and opened as Neyla which also closed

Teavana

Ann Taylor

Red Velvet Cupcakes

Il Fornaio

Paid Parking Under Consideration for Reston, Tysons by Catherine Douglas Moran, RestonNow

The Fairfax County Department of Transportation (FCDOT) is gearing up to study parking management options, which could add paid parking in Reston and Tysons.

FCDOT hopes to hire a professional parking consultant to explore parking management, which FCDOT says would fulfill the vision of the Comprehensive Plan for each area.

It would also reduce traffic congestion and vehicle emissions from drivers circling blocks to find free street parking and create a new revenue stream, FCDOT argues.

 It’s not only restaurants -Pottery Barn and Williams-Sonoma are also leaving-it’s the biggest pain in the butt to pay for parking space in Reston even with the app I go out of my way not to be there now-at least you can park at Balducci‘s for free easily -For those  so inclined  no one will know if you’re in Balducci’s or not and you can park there for free but then you still have to walk a distance to get to whatever store you want——

Insider tip: The WS will have plenty of merchandise on clearance, if you're in need or want of such things. (Not just from that store...)

My wording may have been misleading. Nothing's afoot with WS in general. I meant to convey other stores may move merchandise to stores that are closing...

WS had some good stuff on sale, unfortunately some of the more expensive appliances were not discounted and are being shipped to other stores.
