Petition Fails, “Crypto-Classism” Defeated with Arrival of a 7-11 coming to 14th and Florida Ave, NW

Solea building at 14th and Florida Ave, NW

About a month ago we learned about a petition hoping to block a 7-11 from coming to this corner. At that time Citylab’s Kriston Kapps penned A Petition Against a D.C. 7-11 and the Crypto-Classism of NIMBYism:

“It’s one thing when someone groans about a store he doesn’t like opening in his neighborhood. It’s another when nearly 200 others join him in his call to keep out commercial enterprises that cater to people of lower means. It’s classism.”

Kapps can now back away from the Bastille, a reader tweets us a sign permit for a 7-Eleven at 2300 14th Street, NW:
