ALEXANDRIA, VA.- The Dairy Godmother announced Thursday that they would not re-open the shop after the annual winter break.

The custard shop had just closed its doors January 8, as owner Liz Davis heads to Holland.

In a Facebook post, Davis says after 17 years of owning the store, she has decided to sell and asks anyone interested in buying her business to email her.

The Dairy Godmother, located in the heart of Alexandria's Del Ray neighborhood, is immensely popular and many are sad to see it go.

President Obama and his daughters visited in 2009, and there is a special chair in the store boasting "President Obama sat here June 20, 2009."

A winter pop-up store selling bagels and pickles was already set to open in the Dairy Godmother space over the winter break starting January 20 and running for six weeks.
