Monday Madlib: Rumors relocate Georgetown’s Apple store
This morning, we told you about the kerfuffle surrounding the Apple store planned for Georgetown. Having already sunk a cool $13 million already into the site of its future store, Apple isn’t likely to have wandering eyes, according to ANC commisioner Aaron Golds (COL `11).
But Georgetown’s competition has already starting to flirt with Apple as D.C. media broadcast signs of our marital troubles. DCist reports:
Rumors are floating around that the computer manufacturer’s iconic store might end up elsewhere in the District.
The Examiner’s Harry Jaffe wrote on Friday that frustrated city officials looking to land the city’s first Apple store might actually be helping find a location somewhere other than Georgetown.
Included in those city officials is Ward 1’s Councilman, Jim Graham. Georgetown had better watch out—it’s hard to resist a man in a bowtie. Here at Vox, we’re going to assuage our worries that Apple will head to Ward 1 by giving Graham’s and Jaffe’s statement the Monday Madlib treatment, after the jump.
