A building permit has been issued for a new Rite Aid in the old Glover Park Hardware space (2251 Wisconsin Ave.), according to the Washington Business Journal. “Work will include demolition and installation of a rear elevator and a sprinkler system,” WBJ reports.

The dearly missed hardware store will return to the neighborhood soon, in the vacant space next to Breadsoda (2233 Wisconsin Ave.). Due to delays related to the installation of a freight elevator, the store won’t reopen until mid-June at the earliest, the owner tells us.

The parking lot and building for Pearson’s Wine & Spirits (2430 and 2436 Wisconsin Ave.) have been listed for sale. “Both this store and parking lot are in a prime location in a strong mix of retail and office development, surrounded by a high-income residential neighborhood,” the listing reads. The two properties are owned by David and Helen Choi, who bought them along with the business in 2009. The Chois previously listed the parking lot for sale in 2012, but at the time David told us the family had no intention of selling it. Rather, he said, the lot was listed as a way to discover its fair market value—a common strategy with one-of-a-kind properties. As for this time around, we’re not sure what the listing means. We learned of the listing after our deadline, and David was not immediately available for comment.
