Frager's Hardware signed a lease yesterday on a warehouse in the 1300 block of E St. SE, stated Frager's spokeswoman Kristin Sampson in an email to The Hill Rag

“We are currently building out the space, but eventually it will serve as the temporary home for Frager’s Just Ask Rental and possible storage for the hardware store,” wrote Sampson.

Frager's was destroyed in a tragic fire on June 5. Since that time, the store has opened a pop-up Garden Center next to Eastern Market and resumed limited operations at its original Pennsylvania Avenue location.
