Vinci opens at Westfield Montgomery Mall, Haagen-Dazs to return (Photos)
Vinci Leather has opened at Westfield Montgomery Mall in Bethesda. The shoe and boot retailer is in the spot vacated by Sheepskin and Alpaca Too on Level 2. Downstairs, Haagen-Dazs continues to misfire in the public messaging department. First they abruptly closed and put up a blank wall, looking as if they'd left the mall for good. Then they didn't even leave a note or sign saying the closure was temporary. A week later, they've put up an advertising screen that makes it sound like they will be a new addition, when they are simply renovating their existing space.
Another tenant with Coming Soon signage is sneaker collector emporium Kicks USA.
