Jimmy John's closed at North Bethesda Market
downtown Bethesda location just closed, as well. That location was devastated by the Montgomery County Council's decision to not require the developer of 7272 Wisconsin Avenue to provide a replacement cineplex, after it demolished the Regal Cinemas Bethesda 10.
What went wrong in North Bethesda? It was most likely the general moribundity of the Pike District, which the Council claimed would be the next Tysons, but has been mercilessly crushed by the revamped Tysons. No job growth means no growth in office workers hunting for sandwiches at lunchtime. Looks like the Council had their [briefcases] handed to them "freaky-fast" by Fairfax County once again. Heckuva job, Brownie!
