I work on K St and am not in one of your vilified groups.

Any info on if the store will actually have anything in stock or will be staffed by anything more than booth babes?

If you want a leica in the area, go to Pro Camera in Charlottesville as they seem to acutally serve the film user and carry a good stock of 'pre-owned' gear.

Penn Camera may have been saved, but it appears they have completely given up on film users.
