Frager’s Leases Former Restaurant for Paint Outlet – Hopes to Open in Weeks

by Larry Janezich

The former il Capo de Capitol Hill (and before that, Mi Vecindad) has been leased by Fragers’ to temporarily house their paint store – reportedly, the most profitable of the hardware store’s diverse operations.  The building, at 12th and Pennsylvania Avenue, SE, anchors the east end of the block where the original Frager’s store is.  On Wednesday, workmen were clearing the site in anticipation of stocking and opening – possibly in as few as three weeks.
