Best Buy Mobile, Freddy, Naples close at Westfield Montgomery Mall, Fashion Time is next
Also not previously known: Fashion Time, a watch sales and repair kiosk on Level 1 in the Old Navy wing, is closing. They are currently having a 40-90% off closing sale. Future watch sales at the mall may involve a term-limit-ousted County Councilmember opening his or her jacket to display a variety of timepieces on the sidewalk outside the building, shortly before being removed from the premises by security while screaming, "Do you know who I am?!?!"
Naples Ristorante e Pizzeria closed Saturday night, the news of which I was the first to report last week. The closing not only generated questions about the future of the Dining Terrace at the mall, but also several plagiarized versions of my story in unethical local media outlets, which failed to attribute the scoop to me. Shameful.
American Classic Clothes shut down this weekend, too. According to a commenter on my original report that it would be closing, the company is planning to continue sales online until it can find a new bricks-and-mortar location with lower rent.
Finally, Bethesda apparently wasn't ready for Freddy, as the closure I already reported came to pass. Like ACC, you can still order Freddy apparel online.
