An all-wool clothing store will break the ice on Tuesday at its new store on Bethesda Row.
Icebreaker, the New Zealand-based outdoor and sport clothing company, will hold a ribbon cutting to celebrate the grand openings of its first D.C. area location, at 4821 Bethesda Ave.
The company uses Merino wool to produce outer wear, sports gear, coats, even underwear, gloves and socks.
The Bethesda location will be an Icebreaker TouchLab, open from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday.
The grand opening is set for 10 a.m. on Tuesday.
