Frager's was largely destroyed by Wednesday's fire, though the garden center's inventory survived the blaze.
Though Frager's hardware store was destroyed by a four-alarm fire on Wednesday, the Capitol Hill institution will rise from the ashes this weekend only blocks from where it once stood.
The store's garden center, which was left somewhat unscathed by the massive fire, will move to Eastern Market on Saturday as part of a pop-up installation. On Sunday, Mayor Vince Gray will appear alongside owner John Weintraub at Eastern Market at noon to open the pop-up and announce plans to help the store rebuild and reopen.
Sunday's opening will take place on the site where a temporary structure was erected for vendors displaced by the 2007 fire that almost destroyed the market's South Hall.
Since the fire, the community has rallied to help the 93-year-old hardware store and it's 65 employees. One fundraising effort netted just over $30,000 in three days, while the Capitol Hill Community Foundation is still raising money to help Weintraub pay employees and cover other costs.
