The Extended Shop, a boutique offering plus-size clothing for women, has opened in the North Gulch’s Capitol View district.
The shop takes the space last home to Valerie Boutique.
Amy Skerratt started The Extended Shop on Instagram in 2021. The business has been featured at six local markets and events during the last year, including at Starry Nights Market, Living with Landyn, L&L Market and Porter Flea’s Summer and Holiday Markets.
“I wanted to be very intentional about where I opened my first permanent store, and Capitol View is the perfect fit,” Skerratt said in the release. “I love that we’re in the city, but it still has a walkable neighborhood feel that is full of life. I feel like I’m a part of a destination. I’m overwhelmed by the positivity and success The Extended Shop has received so far and am thrilled to join the Capitol View community.”
“We’re delighted to have The Extended Shop open its first brick-and-mortar location at Capitol View,” said Mark Traylor, partner of Boyle Investment Company (a co-developer of Capitol View). “There is a market for shops that provide extended sizing. Being able to bring emerging leaders from the fashion industry to prime Nashville properties provides another sought-after amenity that caters to the needs of our community.”
Capitol View has been the location of choice for many first-to-market brands, including VICI, Condado Tacos, VSL Nails, Central BBQ, Joe Muer Seafood and Andiamo Presto.
Other Capitol View tenants include M.L.Rose, SVM Boutique, Starbucks, Clean Juice, Pokéworks, Jón Alan Salon, Sercy + Co., Club Pilates, Massage LuXe, drybar and HOTBOX. In addition, the development is home to The Residences at Capitol View, a 378-unit multifamily building that includes a Publix, and Frankie Pierce Park, a trailhead for Metro’s greenway system.
