Silver Spring Beauty Supply has relocated to the former home of Weller’s Dry Cleaning at 8237 Fenton St. in downtown Silver Spring.
Weller’s Dry Cleaners closed last April. The building was built in 1960, according to a 2011 blog post from Montgomery Planning (based on information from the Silver Spring Historical Society). The business was opened by founder/owner Charlie Weller the following year.
Its unique modernist style is known as “Googie” and the building is said to be a rare example. It was designed by Ted Englehardt (1898-1980), founder and first president of the Potomac Chapter of the American Institute of Architects.
Silver Spring Beauty Supply was previously located at 938 Bonifant St.
