Chrome Industries, Frank and Oak closing at The Shay in Shaw

8th and Florida Ave, NW

A reader reports:

“Saw Chrome Industries and Frank and Oak (said Tuesday is their last day) Ed. Note: Their website list this store as a “Washington DC Pop-Up” are also closing at The Shay. They seem to be hemorrhaging tenants over there.”

Washingtonian reported:

“Chrome Industries’ DC shop is soon shutting its doors, marking the third retail closure for high-end development The Shay since September.

The 8th Street, Northwest, store will remain open through November and December and close in the new year.

Chrome and Frank and Oak will follow other closures at The Shay including Steven Alan, Bucketfeet, and Kit & Ace. Before we bury retail at The Shay completely, it’s worth noting that Argent will be replacing Kit & Ace and Violet Boutique will be popping up in the Steven Alan space. Updates on the rest of the retail spaces as more is known.
