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.

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.
