Nike Store Reportedly to Take Over Barnes and Noble Building

This info has bounced around a little in the comments section, but GM realized it’s probably worth its own post: GM has is on good authority that Nike is taking over the Barnes and Noble building once the book store moves out at the end of the year.

Yeah, yeah, yeah. GM’s not happy about it either. Do we really need a gigantic store for sneakers? Well, it seems that a lot of athletic goods providers are betting on Georgetown being a new sports gear hub. Just a few years ago, the only place to pick up new running shoes was Georgetown Running Co. and maybe Sports Zone.

Over the last few years, Georgetown’s added a Lululemon, a CitySports, and is about to add an Athleta. Add Nike to that (plus the four bike stores) and you can get pretty much any athletic gear you need.

Yeah, yeah, yeah. GM would rather have the Barnes and Noble too…
