The owners of Glover Park Hardware (2251 Wisconsin Ave.) thought they had a deal to renew their lease, owner Gina Schaefer told the Georgetown Current. “The landlord decided at the last minute to lease to someone else. It felt like the worst part of business.” The store, which opened in 2005, plans to close in mid-January.
Schafer said the shop is actively looking for a nearby location, and Advisory Neighborhood Commissioner Jackie Blumenthal told reporter Brady Holt that she was looking for ways to help make that happen. “This will be a terrible thing for the neighborhood if they go,” Blumenthal said.
