Opening in March: 7-Eleven store at Wisconsin Avenue and O Street.

While objected to by some neighbors, the convenience store 7-Eleven at Wisconsin Avenue and O Street erected its low-key signage and moved closer to completion. It is expected to open in March.

It will be Georgetown's second 7-Eleven and will be located in the historically significant building, which housed clothing or antique stores in recent years.

The 1344 Wisconsin Ave., NW, location is best known as the place owned by Harry "Doc" Dalinsky who ran the Georgetown Pharmacy. After more than century in operation, the pharmacy closed in 1988. Dalinsky died in 1992.

The Georgetown Advisory Neighborhood Commission sought to keep store designs low-key and appropriate to the neighborhood, and the Old Georgetown Board agreed. Nearby architect Robert Bell -- who purchased the Georgetown Theater property across the street -- found the original designs for the store "degrading to the historic character of the building."

The other Georgetown shop is at 2617 P St., NW.
