    An Apple Store is coming to Georgetown.

    Princeton Investment Corp. sold 1229 Wisconsin Ave. NW to Apple Inc. on Sept. 27, according to a source close to the deal. The French Connection clothing store now occupies the space. Princeton, a European investment group, has owned the property since 1995.

    The company and Apple had been negotiating for several months, sources say.

    The Georgetown store will join other Apple locations in Tysons Corner, Pentagon City and Bethesda.

    I've always thought Georgetown is the perfect location for an Apple Store. Glad to see it's finally happening, although it's a bit too late for me, as I've since moved away from the DC area.

    I was hoping Apple would put the store in the downtown/Chinatown/Gallery Place area but the Georgetown location is going to be huge. It's a 2-story building not unlike the Soho store in NYC.

    i thought you only pay purchasing tax when there is a store physically in your state?

    It would of been nice if they had put it somewhere where there was metro/train access. Unless they will have parking?? Anyone know about that area?
