Bradley Party & Variety hopes to open in early May at 6922 Arlington Road in Bradley Shopping CenterThe Strosniders Hardware-owned variety store taking the space of Bruce Variety will open on Saturday with a special grand opening event.

Bradley Party & Variety will open at 6922 Arlington Rd., in the Bradley Shopping Center, at 11 a.m. with a petting zoo, balloons for kids and giveaways.

The store is also offering a $5 coupon for all purchases of at least $10 through its Facebook page.

The move has created plenty of intrigue. The owners of Bruce Variety claim Stronsiders, their next-door neighbor in the shopping center for almost 60 years, orchestrated their ouster from Arlington Road in order to grab the space to start its own similar business.

Bruce Variety owner Richard Dimock is the ex-husband of Robin Strosnider, who his wife and Bruce Variety co-owner Linda Ridenour claimed paid a retired Bruce Variety worker for inside knowledge of the store’s vendors.

Bruce Variety has since re-opened. But in May, workers stood on the sidewalk near the Bradley Shopping Center with signs declaring Bruce’s new location in Woodmont Triangle.
