Is there any Apple Store in Washington DC? IF not, where is the close store?
Take the yellow/green line down to Pentagon City just over the river. There's an Apple Store there. Or the red line to Bethesda Row, or the Orange line to Clarendon. Apple is building a store in Georgetown, but I avoid GT like the plague, but good luck.
I looked at Apple's site and found this stores in Maryland:
Bethesda, Bethesda Row
Bethesda, Montgomery Mall
Towson, Towson Town Center
I will be in Washington DC in august...just for 1 1/2 day...visiting some sights (Pentagono, White House,...). I've never been in Washington DC before.
I will not have much time to shopping but I want to go to AppleStore.
The best option (safe/close) is Bethesda?
Bethesda is not a full store. Go to Clarendon (Orange line) in Arlington, VA. It's a short metro ride and is a full store.
How much time to go Clarendon?
Why this store is not listed in Apple's site?
Is there any tax buying in Washington like NYC?
Buying in NYC is cheaper than NYC, right?
It's on the Virginia side. It's still in the DC Metro area, but over the river in Virginia. It's the first one listed under Virginia:
* Arlington, Clarendon
If you're going to the Pentagon, take the train 1 more stop past the Pentagon to Pentagon City if you just are buying stuff. It's smaller than the Clarendon store but less out of the way depending on what you are doing. DC tax is lower than NYC tax if I remember correctly.
If you go to that link, you'll see that Pentagon City is one stop past the Pentagon on the yellow/green line. It's a mall and there's a Best Buy there as well. But the Pentagon City Apple Store will appear with the Virginia Apple Stores
Yes, there is tax in DC, as well as Maryland and Virginia. The DC tax rate for tangible retail items is 5.75% (there are different rates for liquor, food, hotels, etc). The Maryland sales tax rate is complicated, but is at least 6% and can be found here: http://business.marylandtaxes.com/taxinfo/salesanduse/sutrate.asp. The Virginia sales tax rate is 5%. At least, this is what I found by a quick Web search--you may just want to ask at the store.
Now, back to work so I can pay all these local taxes on stuff I buy!
Clarendon's kind of a fun area, though, if the OP wants to explore a little.
Then I will go to buy my stuffs in NYC...where I will stay for 8 days.
Just a difference of 2% in taxes...
Does it make sense?
Oh, don't get me wrong, I love Clarendon. It just might be out of the OP's way, especially if they'll already be a few blocks from Pentagon City.
