    dang, one of the only actual useful retailers on the street. guess h st needs more luxury condos and brunch spots.

  • Capitol X

    That’s a shame. They may not be the best stocked but they’ve been friendly and convenient any time I’ve had to do some light work around the house. I’d love if whoever picked it up decided to stick to hardware and maybe just went for it a bit more and dropped the Boost mobile shit.

  • Thunder

    You have clearly found this more useful than I have.

  • 2.5 ain’t bad for 4,600 sqft which can clearly go up as well. once they bulldoze h st connection that area is the next to fill in.

    Not sure why folks are upset, WS Jenks is within 10 blocks and is 10x’s the store this ever was.

    • anon

      because i don’t have a car.

    Ditto to Thunder. They never seemed to have what we needed for any projects. W.S. Jenks on Bladensburg (and Neal, so only two blocks off H) has been a game changer for us. They’re super friendly, well stocked, and they seem to be doing a lot to get engaged with the community. (I’m totally not affiliated – I’m just so happy they’re there and I don’t have to go to Home Depot anymore.)

    • Thunder

      Yep. WS Jenks & son is truly a super asset to the community. Well stocked and very helpful stuff. The paint stock isn’t 10 years old either.

    that has been for sale since 2012, when i bought my place on Bburg rd.
    still asking star-trek money too

  • brookland_rez

    Not surprised. That place is like a time capsule to the past.

    Once I tried to buy finishing nails there and they had no idea what I was asking for. I would love having a hardware store so close, but it’s just so disorganized that I never went there again after that initial visit.
