There's little Wiggle Room for those locked out of Bethesda clothing store

Wiggle Room has closed at 4924 Del Ray Avenue in downtown Bethesda. The problem for some is that the children's and maternity clothing consignment store is still full of their stuff. And the owner has been locked out.

Enter the Montgomery County Office of Consumer Protection. As they have done with several similar situations - most frequently, when dry cleaners have closed - OCP is attempting to be the middleman between consignors and the Wiggle Room space landlord. Those in a predicament with Wiggle Room are asked to file a complaint with OCP online or via telephone, and they will try to help you get your stuff back.

Wiggle Room is the one at fault here. They failed to pay their rent, so the landlord locked them out.

But it's probably Riemer's fault too. He should have bought more clothes from there, and then the business could have paid their rent on time.

A post that is helpful, timely, succinct, and completely non-political.
And yet it still spawned a snark-fest.
Robert, why don't you close down the comments section?

You missed the story on Claire Dratch closing. There is, apparently, a note on the door from one of the owners that they have closed, after decades of business (the eponymous Ms. Dratch died in 2016, her son was still running it until fairly recently.)

Adjacent to Quincy's. Why isn't Dyer blaming Hans Riemer for this?
