A record store that serves coffee and a fashion retailer will become the newest additions to Ellsworth Place this summer, according to the downtown Silver Spring mall’s developers.

Bump ’n Grind, a café and record store, will open this summer on the first floor of the mall, according to an Ellsworth Place press release. Twin Fashions, a clothing store with an international focus, will open in late summer in an 800-square-foot space on the fourth level, across from Guitar Center.

Bump ‘N Grind is a local café, operating at 1200 East West Highway in Silver Spring. It sells records and serves coffee, tea and baked goods in a lounge-like atmosphere and plans a similar setup for its mall location. Twin Fashions has several stores in Maryland.

The mall also announced that Auntie Anne’s, a soft-pretzel chain that opened a location there on April 27, has signed a long-term lease in Ellsworth as well.

“Each of these new retailers add to the eclectic experience we are creating at Ellsworth Place,” Terry Richardson, president and COO of developer Petrie Richardson Ventures, wrote in a statement. “Auntie Anne’s is a long-standing staple in shopping malls, which helps to highlight the new offerings provided by Bump ‘n Grind and Twin Fashions.”

Ellsworth Place owners recently retained a real estate firm to seek potential buyers for the mall. Petrie Richardson partnered with Rockwood Capital in 2012 to renovate the mall, a $75-million project that transformed the former City Place mall and brought in new stores like T.J. Maxx and Michaels.
