    Get ready for bulk tube socks, massive packages of toilet paper, and giant tubs of rugelach -- Costco is finally coming to D.C.!

    At-Large Councilmember Kwame Brown claims that Costco has "finalized an agreement" with developers that would bring a store to Fort Lincoln, according to the Washington Post's Tim Craig. The site is near the intersection of New York and South Dakota avenues NE.

    The Costco deal has been in the works for upwards of five years, and LL claims some credit for breaking the impasse in Costco negotiations. His "How to Beat Costco" guide for local retailers appeared in last week's Washington City Paper shopping issue. Clearly it had them running scared.
