Gym & Tonic Has Closed in Park Potomac

by MCS Staff

Gym & Tonic, a boutique featuring “the best in luxury athletic and casual wear” has closed after approximately 4.5 years in Park Potomac. The 1,000 SF boutique opened in September 2018 at 12435 Park Potomac Ave. According to Store Reporter, the brand is hoping to reopen at a different shopping center, likely in Potomac or Bethesda, but decided not to renew its lease due to a lack of foot traffic in Park Potomac.

Per a previous press release, Gym & Tonic offered a unique blend of high-end athleisure apparel. It’s the brainchild and labor of love of two retail veterans and good friends – Amy Block and Wendy Abelman. Block, a Miami native turned Bethesda-ite, wanted to open a store that she felt was lacking in the DC Metro area.“We created Gym & Tonic to feature the kinds of fashionable, top-of-the-line clothes that we all love to wear,” Block said. “Everything we offer is stylish whether you’re at the gym in the morning or out on the town at night.”

“Our customers are working to be healthier and more fit, and we want them to look as good as they feel,” Abelman said. “We love the idea of wearing the same stylish activewear whether you’re doing planks or drinking Prosecco.” Block previously owned Body & Soul, a fitness center with a retail component in Miami, before selling to raise her two children. Abelman had worked for Lucky Brands before teaming up with her friend to open Gym & Tonic at Park Potomac. Featured photo courtesy of Google Maps.
