Capitol Hill’s Trover Shop to Close

Washington Post Staff Writer Kate Kilpatrick laments the forthcoming close of a Capitol Hill landmark, the Trover Shop. Though the plethora of political material in the store is less to my liking, many lament it’s passing.

Kilpatrick relates:

Bookstore enthusiasts walking along Pennsylvania Avenue during lunch break yesterday were confronted with sobering news: After 51 years in business on Capitol Hill, Trover Shop is closing.

Bright-orange fliers announcing 20 percent off merchandise were taped around the shop before the 7 a.m. opening. In the window, a letter began: “It is with great sadness that we inform you of our plans to close our Capitol Hill location, but given the current economic climate and the changes in our industry, we are faced with no other viable option.”
