Washington, D.C.-based clothing retailer Xtra Ordinaire Apparel has permanently closed its location at 914 Ellsworth Drive in Downtown Silver Spring.
Known commercially as XOA Lifestyle, the retailer confirmed the closure via Instagram, noting that they have expanded their presence at the Fashion Centre at Pentagon City in Arlington, Va., adding a second clothing store and a selfie museum.
The retailer signed a short-term lease, Laurie Yankowski, regional marketing director for The Peterson Companies, said to the Source last year. The Peterson Companies co-owns the Downtown Silver Spring development.
XOA Lifestyle originally opened in the former location of New York & Company at 937 Ellsworth Dr. in November of 2020. They later relocated to the former Ulta Beauty storefront at 914 Ellsworth Dr. after Ulta moved to 8510 Fenton St., which was previously home to City Sports and more recently, Arts on the Block.
According to their profile on Downtown Silver Spring’s website, “Xtra Ordinaire Apparel is a multi-functional, unisex, global lifestyle brand that was initially formed in 2016, by three free progressive thinkers raised in the heart of the nation’s capital, Washington, DC. This fusion produced a creative, timeless, high-quality fashion streetwear clothing line. Founded with the thought to appease the ever changing, millennial generation multifaceted audience, at Xtra Ordinaire, we place an immense level of effort to appease the apparel needs of individuals who are passionate about their crafts, and refuse to take a day off from chasing their dreams and desires.”
A replacement retailer has not been announced. The Downtown Silver Spring development will see several openings in the coming months, including Kusshi Ko, Dog Haus Biergarten, Miss Toya’s Creole House, Flip’d by IHOP, and Sleep Number.
