Presidential Inaugural Committee (PIC) Launches Official Store
Today, the Presidential Inaugural Committee (PIC) launched its online store and announced the upcoming opening of a Washington, DC retail location offering official memorabilia to celebrate the second inauguration of President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden. These official outlets, offering unique pieces from mugs to t-shirts to blankets, will ensure that every American can celebrate this historic event.
“We are excited to announce the launch of the Presidential Inaugural Committee 2013 Official Store,” said Presidential Inaugural Committee spokeswoman Addie Whisenant. “This inauguration is an historic moment for all Americans to come together and celebrate. Whether it is a tote bag or a sweatshirt, this official memorabilia helps Americans across the country share in this special event.”
In Washington, DC, the Presidential Inaugural Committee will open an official retail location for the local community and those traveling to the nation’s capital for inaugural events. The memorabilia will reflect the PIC’s official theme for the 57th Presidential Inauguration: “Our People. Our Future,” which expresses the belief that this inauguration is not just a celebration of a president, it’s a celebration of the American people.
The retail store will open at 1155 F St. NW later this month. Official PIC merchandise will also be available for sale at select hotels throughout Washington, DC. The PIC operated a similar retail outlet in 2009, also located in downtown Washington, DC.
The PIC also unveiled a special edition poster designed by celebrated artist and long-time supporter Chuck Close.
