Spurred on by the BID’s event last week, GM finally got around to doing his annual-ish census of the stores of Georgetown. (The last census was last October, so GM was actually more close to annual than his normal practice of letting is slip a few more months.)
While he is still compiling and QC’ing the data, here are a couple top line numbers:
- There are 507 stores, restaurants, etc. in Georgetown
- 35 shops opened
- 37 shops closed
- 8 shops moved within Georgetown
Those are relatively normal numbers for Georgetown over the recent years. Although the number of shops moving was unusually high. That is likely a result of the various shufflings we saw along Wisconsin, like Major taking over the old Appalachian Spring building and Tugooh Toys taking over the old Major space.
Stay tuned for a deeper dive into the numbers!
Oh an if you’re curious, it apparently took about 5 miles of walking for GM to check all the stores:
