I read the story that Yenching Palace will becoma a Wallgreens. Has it already closed or is it still open for awhile?

Thanks,

Kevin

    My wife told me last night that it has in fact closed.

      I called Yenching last evening and the man said they'd be open until spring or early summer. Your wife, like Rick in Casablanca, was mis-informed.

      Thanks,

      Kevin

        It will be a Walgreen's according to stories but first it has to go through the ANC process and deal with Historic Preservation issues since it's in the Cleveland Park Historic District.http://www.dcist.com/archives/2006/09...
