The Red Door spa at Cross Keys closing in March

The Red Door Salon & Spa will close its Baltimore location in The Village of Cross Keys shopping center next month, the company said Tuesday.

“We appreciate your patronage throughout the years and thank you for being a loyal guest,” the spa said in an email to clients.

The spa is the latest in a series of retail closings or moves out of the North Baltimore center.

Tuesday’s announcement said the spa will close March 16. It has been a tenant in Cross Keys for 13 years.

“After 13 successful years in the space, we have decided to focus on our three surrounding locations in Gaithersburg, Pike & Rose [Bethesda], and College Park,” said Chelsey Orth, regional director for Red Door, in an email. “We thank our loyal customers for their continued support and look forward to serving them at our other locations, as well as any new spaces in the future.”

Cross Keys, one of the earliest projects of Columbia’s founder, James W. Rouse, is an upscale shopping center off Falls Road below Roland Park. It was acquired by Ashkenazy Acquisition Corp. in 2012.

A representative from Ashkenazy, which also owns Harborplace, did not return a request for comment on Red Door closing. Last week, real estate research firm TreppWire reported that Ashkenazy is in danger of defaulting on its loan for Harborplace.

Other Cross Keys retailers include Octavia Boutique, Chezelle, Williams-Sonoma, Pied Piper, Talbots and The Store Ltd.

Jean Pool, an upscale denim boutique, closed at the end of May after 12 years in business. Women’s clothing boutique Ruth Shaw moved in September 2017 to The Shops at Kenilworth in Towson. Menswear shop Samuel Parker Clothier closed in 2017 and Jones & Jones women’s boutique closed at the end of 2015 after more than 40 years in the center. Others that have left include J.Jill, Chico’s and Donna’s Cafe.

The chain of Red Door spas, started by the founder of the Elizabeth Arden Inc. cosmetics company, has 29 locations in nine states and Washington, including the four in Maryland.
