...with all the this, that and the other kinds of shops which occupy retail space in Georgetown, and with offices in buildings all over the commercial area, why oh why don't we have a business supply store? We used to have a little "ma and pa" on Dumbarton Street, which was put out of business by Staples, which was put out of business by its own self.
And so, here we are, with all kinds of options for buying clothing made in "emerging market" nations, but not one single full on business supply store. This is where the Georgetown development plan is a big fat failure. Oops. My mistake. There is no Georgetown development plan...that I know of.
Had to drive downtown today to buy printer ink. In rush hour. With no parking. It's trivial until you need something like printer ink at 4 pm on a Wednesday. I live in Georgetown to be in Georgetown, not to have to drive downtown at rush hour. This would be a whiny complaint except Georgetown is a retail hub and used to have useful businesses among all the other stuff. Please don't tell me Target will answer the problem. The problem was once upon a time answered with the "ma and pa" store on Dumbarton.
