Crabtree & Evelyn holding closing sale at Westfield Montgomery Mall

The "Everything Must Go!" signs now ubiquitous around Montgomery County retail centers have been slapped up at Crabtree & Evelyn at Westfield Montgomery Mall. There will be "nothing held back," and savings are up to 50% off at this point. Moribund Montgomery County has suffered a net loss of over 2100 retail jobs since 2000, according to a spokeswoman for the Maryland Retailers Association. The flight of Montgomery's rich to lower-tax jurisdictions in the region has reduced the market for upscale fragrance and home goods like those carried by Crabtree & Evelyn.
