A commenter on Friday asked:
“can anyone confirm the rumor on mount pleasants forum that Pfieffers is LEAVING Mount Pleasant!?!?!!?!?! there goes one of, what?, 5 businesses that are worth a damn on the MTP strip.”
Well, I have good news and bad news for ya. I went this weekend and spoke with owner, Todd Pfieffer (who as nice as everyone says he is), at Pfieffer’s store at 3219 Mount Pleasant Street NW. Todd confirmed that indeed Pfieffer’s will be sold. Todd and his family will be moving to North Carolina to be closer to their family. That is the bad news. The good news is that Pfeiffer’s is still open and Todd believes the store will be sold around the time of the inauguration. More good news is that the store will remain a hardware store. It will be difficult for the new owners to be as nice as Todd is but it is also good news that store will remain filled and will remain a hardware store.
