Arcadia Boutique in Rittenhouse Square is closing.

But fans of the beloved, independent apparel boutique have nothing to fear: The Northern Liberties location (819 N. 2nd Street) will remain open. In fact, it's expanding.

Owner Ali McCloud announced Monday she is starting a new collaboration this summer with Design 6 - the company responsible for Arcadia's nifty decor and memorable interior design. Design 6 is setting up a small studio within the NoLibs location, and will offer wallpaper, fabrics, and interior design services for clients.

Rittenhouse residents, meanwhile, will have the opportunity to enjoy a mega clearance sale at Arcadia's closing spot (265 S. 20th Street). Shoppers score deals on apparel from brands like Dolce Vita, BB Dakota, Vanessa Mooney, and James Jeans. Menswear items from Original Penguin and Alternative Apparel will also be offered at steep discounts. The sale starts Friday.

Arcadia's Rittenhouse Square store opened in 2010. The location will close in mid-May.
