Redskins Store closes at Westfield Montgomery Mall in Bethesda (Photos)
This is one of several perplexing closures at the mall recently. Sure, there have been disappointing seasons for the Skins too many years (although I remain a fan no matter how bad the record is any given year). But the team had an exciting season last year, has made some good additions for the upcoming season, and expectations are high. Not to mention that a poll of Native Americans recently sapped all the energy out of the New York-Dallas media conspiracy to strip the team of its name and history.
So, why would the Redskins Store close now? Bizarre. My only complaint was that the store was too small, and therefore couldn't carry the full spectrum of Redskins merchandise that is available.
