After Half-Century On the Hill, Beloved Trover Shop Comes To the Last Chapter

From the Washington Post web site
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."

"Oh, my goodness gracious. It's been here forever," said customer Annette Alsop, who was flipping through a magazine when she spotted the going-out-of-business signs. "I didn't even notice. I'm stunned."

Customers and employees reminisced yesterday about the boldface names who had visited Trover for book signings -- Hillary Clinton, Colin Powell, Barbara Walters and Larry King, to name a few -- or simply to pick up a good read.
