D.U.C., which makes jewelry, car parts and other consumer products, has been bought out by a jewelry chain.
The company, which has been owned by the D.A.R.E. Group, will close its retail outlets and shift production to another store, said an email to The Washington Post.
It will no longer make jewelry, watch bands, shoes, gloves, or belts.
The new owner will begin selling jewelry, clothing and other products, including accessories.
The D.D.A., which specializes in specialty retailing, will continue to operate the company, spokeswoman Heather Deutsch said.
Doorbells and other doorbells have been a big seller for Doorbells.com, which also provides customer service and technical support for home, office and commercial customers.
The chain has about 700 locations nationwide.
Doorbell.com was founded in 2005.
It operates more than 200 locations across the country.
In a statement to The Post, Doorbell’s chief executive said he was “deeply saddened” by the news.
“We were saddened to learn of the sale and are grateful for the support and guidance we received from D.R.’s family, friends and associates throughout this difficult time,” the statement said.
“I would like to extend my sincere condolences to the employees and families who have worked with us for the past decade.”
The D.E.(A)R.G. said it will continue the doors, windows and doors of the store and provide support to those who are impacted by the move.
It said it expects to open its doors later this month in the D1 neighborhood.
“Our hearts go out to all of those impacted by this tragic loss, our team of professionals and employees, and our many friends who have shared our love of this store and of jewelry and other merchandise with us,” the company said.
