Join the Frager’s family as they celebrate John & Fran Weintraub’s 40+ years as owners of Frager’s Hardware with a Farewell BBQ tonight from 5-7 p.m. at the garden center, 1323 E Street SE.
Five percent of sales during the event will be donated to Capitol Hill Community Foundation, one of John & Fran’s favorite local nonprofits.
Festivities include a BBQ cookout on the Big Green Egg, Live Music, free potting service (purchase a plant + pot and they’ll pot it for you free of charge), complimentary snowcones + popcorn from their rental program, prizes, and a raffle!
John Weintraub has run Frager’s since 1975, when he and Ed Copenhaver took it over from the sons of the original owner. The store has been a treasured business in the neighborhood since its opening in 1920, and will continue to serve us all under the new ownership of Gina Schaefer and Marc Friedman, owners of the popular Logan Hardware.
