Multiple news reports are reporting grim news tonight about San Jose-based Orchard Supply Hardware, the home improvement and gardening products store.
All stores across the nation “will permanently close by the the end of this year,” according to KRON4, with liquidation beginning Thursday.
Redwood City has a store at 2110 Middlefield Rd. Orchard Supply Hardware launched in 1931, is headquartered in San Jose and, after filing for Chapter 11 reorganization, was acquired by Lowe’s in 2013. According to NBC Bay Area, the chain has 98 stores across California, Oregon and Florida.
