Neither Crazy Eddie (“His prices are insaaaaane!”) nor Luskin’s (“The cheapest guy in town!”) are still in business but if we were kicking it old school and those now defunct electronics retailers were going concerns, there’s no doubt they’d be hawking Apple iPhones and they’d be looking at doing it in downtown DC. (We’ve reported on this before…) Speaking of which, the rumors keep popping up that Apple is looking for space in our ‘hood where they can drop a store.The latest evidence? An Apple retail store devotee website. And you thought the Miley Cyrus fan sites were over the top…here’s the quote:
Penn Quarter – Washingon (DC) – In early August tipsters said that Apple’s real estate team was seriously scouting locations, including the area around 7th Street and H Street, and the new nearby just-announced, 10-acre City Center DC development (former Convention Center, H-New York St, 9th-11th St.). The district is north of the Capitol mall, equidistant between the Capitol and the Lincoln Memorial, adjacent to Chinatown. The development–and store–could open in 2011.
