Dolcezza, a local Washington, D.C.-area chain of gelato and coffee shops, will close five of its locations next month including the one in Bethesda Row, the company announced on Tuesday.

Dolcezza wrote on its website Tuesday that it would close the Bethesda location, at 7111 Bethesda Lane, along with its Logan Circle, City Center, Wharf and Dupont Circle locations in D.C.

The shops will close in October, according to the company’s statement. It wasn’t immediately clear what the Bethesda shop’s last day would be.

The 16-year-old gelato chain decided to close the locations due in part to the “sobering impact COVID-19 has had on our industry,” the statement read.

Dolcezza’s Hirshhorn in D.C. and its Virginia locations will stay open, the statement said.

Representatives from Dolcezza could not be reached for comment Tuesday afternoon.
