More From That Survey

After posting that chart listing all the businesses in Georgetown that are on either Wisconsin or M (or just off either), GM realized there were some errors in the chart that needed the be corrected:

  1. The Georgetown Mall’s shops were added
  2. Several stores were left off simply by mistake
  3. The Beatles song is “Baby’s Got Me Locked up in Chains” not “Wrapped”.

With these revisions, the overall stats are not really different (the Georgetown Mall actually has many independent shops, although that may change with Lanier’s Bloomingdale’s proposal). Here is some of the revised data, with some further breakdown:

Independents        298      69.79%
