Consignment Sale Comes to Montgomery County!

Seasonal consignment shopping is a fast growing trend, especially for baby and children's items. Kids grow so fast, and items like clothes, strollers, car seats, cribs and toys seem barely used. It is for this reason that Tot Swap, Maryland's largest consignment sale for kids, babies, and teens, has added a new summer sale in addition to a fall and spring sale at the Montgomery County Fairgrounds in Gaithersburg.

“Families come in, they bring their merchandise and they resell it to other families who are in need of toys, shoes, bedding, DVDs, books, and clothes. We have tons of anything and everything for children at a fraction of the cost,” said Totswap’s  Robyn Rutland.

Too Soon? Community Reacts to Lululemon Store Reopening

 

Lululemon Athletica announced Tuesday, June 14th, that they will reopen the newly renovated Bethesda store on Friday, June 24th. 

We stopped by Bethesda Avenue to see what the community thought about the recent news.  There were mixed emotions about the news but for the most part, people were happy to see the store re-open its doors.

 

“It’s a tragic thing that happened a few months ago, but you have to move on in a positive light and I think it is time for the store to do that,” said Virginia resident Emily Duus.

 

In March, the store was the scene of a homicide, where employee Jayna Murray was pronounced dead.  Her co-worker Brittany Norwood has since been charged in Murray's murder. They both were 30 years old. Click here to read the full story.
