The Presidential Inaugural Committee says it will open a retail store on F Street in downtown Washington later this month to sell souvenirs of the event, a location that will follow Thursday's opening of an online store.

The online store's offerings include memorabilia with the inauguration's theme -- "Our People, Our Future" -- and items like a commemorative medallion set ($7,500) and a $100 poster with a portrait of President Obama by Chuck Close.

"This inauguration is an historic moment for all Americans to come together and celebrate," spokeswoman Addie Whisenant said. "Whether it is a tote bag or a sweatshirt, this official memorabilia helps Americans across the country share in this special event."

The retail store, which will be at 1155 F St., will open later in the month, and customers can click here to visit the online store.

Obama will take the oath of office at a public ceremony on Jan. 21, though he will be sworn in during a private event on Jan. 20.
