Under Armor in Montgomery Mall (7101 Democracy Blvd, Bethesda) will be closing for several months beginning on April 26 for remodeling.
During this time, Under Armor will have a temporary location in the mall at the former site of Sports Nation, which closed back in February. The temporary store is expected to be open a few days after the main location closes and will feature a majority of their inventory, except for kids clothing.
The remodel is estimated to take around five months.
Kevin Plank, founder of Under Armour, grew up in Kensington. He is the youngest of five brothers born to William and Jayne Plank. His father was a prominent real estate developer who passed away in 1993. A local project of his was the Al Marah subdivision off River Road, just off of exit 39 on the Beltway. His mother was the mayor of Kensington for 8 years, from 1974-1982. She went on to direct the Office of Legislative and Intergovernmental Affairs at the United States Department of State under President Ronald Reagan, and was a real estate broker until the early 2000s.
