Anthropologie is my FAVORITE store. Three-quarters of my wardrobe comes from there. Yes, I know it's expensive, but the clothes I have from there last and seem to never go out of style. I even have curtains, cereal bowls, coffee mugs... it's safe to say I'm a fan. The news that Anthro is building a massive, one of a kind store just down the street from my work makes me wildly excited, but I understand why there's some backlash. This massive Anthro will be taking over Barnes & Noble, a bookstore that has been in that spot on Bethesda Row for as long as I can remember. A petition is out on Change.org to keep the store standing and prevent this retail giant from taking over. I'd love to know your feelings. On a positive note, we still have a huge Barnes & Noble right up 355 in Rockville. I can see it from my studio window right now. I was just there last night, buying the latest David Sedaris book. I am pleased to have Anthro back in Montgomery County since the closest to us is in Chevy Chase. I've missed Anthro in MoCo since the one on 355 in Rockville was replaced by a tile store. Here's the article from Bethesda Magazine breaking down the new Bethesda Anthropologie, and the link to the petition to keep Barnes & Noble in its place.
