DSW in DCUSA opens today?!

That's weird. I just got this press release claiming that the DSW store opens today. I haven't seen much progress but I'll check it out tonight. Strange.
COLUMBUS, Ohio, Oct. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- DSW Inc. (NYSE: DSW), a leading branded footwear and accessories retailer, announced that its newest store will open on October 11(th) at 3100 14(th) Street NW in Washington, D.C. Located in the neighborhood of Columbia Heights, this is DSW's 15(th) store in the metro D.C. area, but just the first to open within D.C. proper.
