Longtime Bethesda Favorite Closing In Bradley Shopping Center


After 60 years, the Bruce Variety store in Bradley Shopping Center is closing.

The supply shop known for its vast collection of crafts, fabrics and other assorted items you probably didn’t even know existed is having a clearance sale today. Everything is half off.

A sign in the window says the store will be moving. An employee said the store will likely close in a week or two and will be open on New Year’s Day. The owner was not available.

The store, at 6922 Arlington Rd. next to Strosniders Hardware, stocked hairnets, cotton underwear, even bras.

Blogger Robert Dyer reported the store is closing because of rent increases.
