Orchard Supply opens near Fisherman's Wharf

Orchard Supply's new San Francisco location.

Orchard Supply Hardware has officially opened up shop in San Francisco with a new North Beach location near Fisherman's Wharf.

"We are excited to bring the residents of North Beach a convenient destination and high level of service and expertise for all of their paint, repair or seasonal needs," said Bob Tellier, president of OSH. "Our new urban-focused store will carry more than 35,000 different household and maintenance items uniquely selected to address the specific needs of San Francisco residents."

Customers will be able to avail themselves of typical Orchard Supply offerings, though with products geared toward small, urban spaces.

Services, such as key cutting, rescreening and other maintenance tasks will be available at its Workbench.

The 36,000-sq.-ft. store occupies two buildings connected by a glass skywalk, and it features local touches such as a switch plate mosaic and a six-foot Golden Gate Bridge art piece made of hardware.

"We used different design and visual elements to call attention to some of the unique architectural features of this building, such as highlighting the interior brick wall with a city skyline mural painted directly onto the surface by California artist Tom Adams," said Erica Ecker, director of visual marketing, OSH. "Also, the existing elevator support structure has been painted 'Golden Gate Bridge Red' and will be used to feature our work wear products."

As per Orchard Supply custom, the North Beach store's charity partner will be the San Francisco Botanical Garden Society.

The new store is located at 2598 Taylor Street, with a grand opening celebration scheduled for Aug. 1 and 2.

Orchard Supply received the 2015 HBSDealer Retailer of the Year award during a ceremony in Las Vegas in May at the National Hardware Show.
