The North Face is open at Bethesda Row, and it's not too late for you to join in the festivities today! In fact, all that happened last night is happening again today at the new store on Bethesda Avenue - and more. Mix 107.3 FM is doing a live broadcast from the store, and The North Face is bringing a Rock Climbing Wall to Bethesda Row! Are you up to the challenge?
If you went yesterday, what did you think? I stopped by last night and got some exclusive video for you:
If you didn't visit yet, get a sneak preview on the video, and then make plans to go today or tomorrow. Here's the official schedule again:
I also picked up the Venture Jacket I won in the ongoing contest. It is a great rainproof jacket, and I will be posting a second video to show you all of the features. Be a winner yourself by following @TNFBethesda on Twitter for all of the latest news and giveaways. And of course, follow me at @BethesdaRow to find out everything that's going on around downtown Bethesda.
The staff was very helpful in getting the right size of jacket for me, and rounded up a salesperson to help find thermal shirts I was searching for. The North Face is opening at the perfect time, as we are getting a sneak preview of the frigid, heavy snowfall winter ahead: now you can gear up with everything you need not only for weather survival, but for all of your favorite winter sports (extreme or otherwise) as well. I found out that you can even have orders from The North Face web site shipped to the Bethesda Row store, and pick them up there to receive FREE shipping!
How did they jam all that gear into the store? I don't know, but it's here and ready for winter. So stop by this weekend to check it out for yourself, and enjoy the festivities at The North Face Bethesda grand opening!
