Banana Republic in Reston Town Center is closing

Banana Republic is planning to close its location at Reston Town Center by the end of the month.

A store representative tells Reston Now that the retailer, which sells women’s and men’s business casual clothing, is expected to close by Jan. 24.

No word yet on what will replace the store at 11905 Democracy Drive.

Banana Republic has other locations in Dulles Town Center, Tysons Corner Center, and Montgomery, Md.

County permits do not indicate what will take up the space, once it is vacated.

The parent company, Gap Inc., plans to close 350 Gap and Banana Republic stores by the end of next year. The closures are part of the company’s plans to move out of malls and other areas where foot traffic is low.

The company did not return several requests for comment.

Boston Properties has indicated that seven new businesses are expected to open this year.

Compass Real Estate, for example, is in the permitting process to open at 11943 Democracy Drive.

Crunch Fitness closed on Dec. 20.
