WASHINGTON (AP) More than two years after buying a Georgetown building, Apple Inc. is opening its first store in Washington.
The grand opening is slated for Friday from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Wisconsin Avenue store.
The glass storefront design proved problematic last year when an architectural review board rejected Apple's proposal four times. The Old Georgetown Board rejected the designs mainly because the building wouldn't conform with the area's federal-style properties.
Apple finally won approval for its fifth design in March 2009.
