Fragers Hardware In Capitol Hill Catches Fire


Incredibly saddened when I heard about our local neighborhood hardware store, Fragers catching on fire earlier this evening. Fragers Hardware is a DC institution. In a city that hadn't permitted the big box stores like Home Depot until just recently, many of us had grown up connected in someway to small family run businesses like Fragers for all of our home needs. We've grown close to the employees while a lot of us were once employees ourselves. We are keeping our fingers crossed and hoping the best for everyone directly connected.
