Like all of you I have loved Bruce Variety in downtown Bethesda for years. Walking into that store lets me take a trip back in time to when the world seemed like a gentler, simpler, more civilized place. It would be so sad for Bethesda to lose that vestige of the past.
I am wholeheartedly a supporter of the free market, but I also support individual's rights to show their support (or boycott!) for a shopping center based upon strong community desires. Bruce's is more than just a store; it's a unique atmosphere in this day and age that brings a wonderful vibe to the otherwise largely cookie-cutter corporate stores that surround us.

Mr. Barrow
Allow Bruce Variety to renegotiate their lease.

      Shouting out to all of our loyal customers, to announce that Bruce Variety has re-opened at our new location, 8011 Woodmont Avenue Bethesda, Md., at the corner of Woodmont Avenue and Cordell. We opened Friday, and have been overwhelmed by the crowd of new and old customers that have come to wish us well and shop in the new store. We didn't realize how many thousands of residents there are walking from their apartments and condos in the Woodmont Triangle.....all thrilled to have us at their doorstep!!! So many familiar faces too, from so many of you who have shopped faithfully with Bruce Variety for years... and generations!!! So get the word out. We look forward to fulfilling your every household and craft need!

      The store has great variety, no pun intended, and when there it is like a home, you know the people who work their, they are kind, you get help, it is really a special store
