Mahir Iskender said it became clear that Bethesda — at least the Woodmont Triangle section of town — wasn’t the place for a small, high fashion-minded business.

“As an entrepreneur, I would not recommend boutiques to open in Bethesda. Maybe Chevy Chase would be better,” Mahir Iskender said. “It is a very tough market as people are very conservative over there and for some reason, not willing to spend.”
