Bagel City appears to have closed in Rockville

Bagel City at 12119 Rockville Pike appears to have permanently closed. On Monday morning, the sign was missing from the shop and there was brown paper in the windows.  A “For Lease” sign from Weingarten Realty was posted in the window next door.

Montgomery Community Media reported on Saturday that a neighboring business confirmed that the shop had permanently closed after 40 years.

Bagel City’s website states that the shop is temporarily closed due to the COVID-19 health crisis.

No one from Weingarten Realty could be reached for comment Monday morning.
