From the September 2015 edition of the Glover Park Gazette:

Glover Park Hardware hopes to open in its new ground-floor location (2233 Wisconsin Ave.) in October, according to owner Gina Schaefer. The company rented the vacant storefront shortly after its lease at the prior location (2251 Wisconsin Ave.) expired in January. The owners have been working ever since to renovate the space and install a needed freight elevator. Delays with the elevator’s installation have led to much frustration, both for the owners and for Glover Parkers who have sorely missed the shop.

The hardware store’s old space underneath Washington Sports Club is slated to become a Rite Aid.

From the September 2015 edition of the Glover Park Gazette:

After two years of renovations, Mad Fox Tap Room opened August 17 at 2218 Wisconsin Ave., the former home of Mayfair & Pine. “We’re very happy to be here,” says Bill Madden, who owns the business along with wife Beth and two partners. “The more research we did on Glover Park, the more we knew that this was a good place for us.” The neighborhood’s family-friendly vibe is very similar to that of Falls Church, site of Mad Fox’s original brewpub, Beth adds.

The restaurant’s interior feels airier than it did before the renovation. Ceilings are higher, and a bulky climate-control unit that was housed near the staircase has been replaced by one on the roof. The relocation of that unit allowed builders to create a small mezzanine using an interior window that had been hidden behind wallboard for more than 50 years.

Along with a selection of Mad Fox beers on tap, the pub’s menu features kohlrabi hummous; green-tomato gazpacho; a “hifalutin” turkey burger; and entrees such as grilled ribeye steak with horseshoe fries. Chef Brandon Moser has worked previously in Orvieto, Italy, and at D.C.’s Bistro Bis.

In keeping with its family-friendly locale, Mad Fox offers a kids’ menu and has root beer on tap, made by the brewery with real cane sugar. The pub opens at 4 pm Monday through Friday and at noon on weekends.

Glover Park Hardware will open in its new ground-floor location (2233 Wisconsin Ave.) in mid-September, according to the Georgetown Current. The company rented the vacant storefront shortly after its lease at the prior location (2251 Wisconsin Ave.) expired in January. The owners have been working ever since to renovate the space and install a needed freight elevator. “Glover Park Hardware’s new space is smaller in square footage than the old store,” the Current states, “but [owner Gina] Schaefer said the store benefits from a friendlier relationship with the landlord, cheaper operating costs, and a nicer appearance than the unrenovated old space.”

The store’s old space underneath Washington Sports Club is slated to become a Rite Aid.

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.
