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.”
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.
From the April 2015 edition of the Glover Park Gazette:
“We love our Glover Park community and we were committed to reopening in this neighborhood,” co-owner Gina Schaefer said in a press release. Neighbors interested in news of the reopening can sign up for bulletins by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Lancaster Farm Fresh Cooperative, which delivers produce, herbs, and other farm products to members all summer, has changed its pickup location.

Full-season signups are open until April 24th, and the Summer CSA runs for 26 weeks from May through October. For more information or to sign up, visit lancasterfarmfresh.com or call 717-656-3533.

Keep an eye on your belongings when you’re out and about. Thieves have been making off with unguarded valuables lately. Some examples from recent police reports:
• On February 8, a shopper left her purse unattended in a cart in the parking garage at Safeway (1855 Wisconsin Ave.). She later discovered that she was missing $300 in cash, several credit cards, and a New Jersey driver’s license.
• On January 28, a shopper left her purse unattended in a cart at Whole Foods (2323 Wisconsin Ave.). A “suspicious female” in her 60s tried to take the cart and then apologized. Shortly afterward, the shopper discovered that her wallet was missing.
• On February 7, a driver stopped to fuel her Nissan SUV at the Washingtonian Gas Station (2450 Wisconsin Ave.). A black Hyundai with tinted windows and temporary tags pulled up next to her, and a man got out, opened her SUV’s rear door, and stole a leather bag containing a wallet, a sweater, a Pennsylvania driver’s license, and $15 in coins. The Hyundai then fled southbound on 37th Street.
• On February 12, a man at Georgetown Plaza (2233 Wisconsin Ave.), left his wallet and iPhone in an unlocked locker before taking a class. When he returned, he noticed the items were gone. Someone later tried to use one of his credit cards to charge $250 at a Safeway in Arlington, Virginia.
