Cole Hardware builds on community program

BY Ken Clark

San Francisco-based Cole Hardware’s Community Partner Assistance Program, now in its 17th year, is expanding through a gift registry to include groups that can register for needed supplies or ongoing wish lists.

"We are happy to be a part of the San Francisco community and are pleased to assist the schools and non-profits in San Francisco doing their part to make our city the best place to live," said Julia Strzesieski, marketing coordinator for Cole Hardware.

The registry may be used for improvement projects and can include paint and supplies or cleaning products. Schools and community gardens can also register for gardening supplies. Cole will set up the registry, and the community can easily access the group’s wish list and purchase online any of the items on their list or a gift card.

Cole Hardware also has an ongoing Spare Change Program. In August they participated with other independent hardware retailers across the county in collecting spare change for the Children’s Miracle Network and collected more than $500. In October, they collected spare change for Bay Area Young Survivors, a support group for breast cancer survivors and presented the group with a check for more than $800.

San Francisco is one of the
San Francisco is one of the most beautiful cities here in USA. I always go back there to visit and I can't get enough of it. I saw a link on www.trendmicro.com for this program and this is how I found out about it. I was always impressed by the cleanliness in san Francisco and I think Cole Hardware's Community Partner Assistance Program is a very good initiative.

That's how business is done and that's how I want to start my own business: from an unsatisfied need. I checked some strategic points on Orlando classifieds and I found the spot for me, I am looking forward to open my own store.

Anti-Semitism suspected in N.J. store attack

BY HBSDEALER Staff

Police have arrested a 52-year-old suspect in the vandalization of Jack’s Hardware and several other Jewish-owned businesses in New Brunswick, N.J., according to an article in the Daily Targum.

The front windows of Trio Gifts, Judaica Gallery, Jerusalem Pizza, Jack’s Hardware and Park’s Place Kosher Family Restaurant, all located on Raritan Avenue, were found damaged and smashed Nov. 29, according to the article. A preliminary investigation found that all the businesses were owned by Jewish merchants.

Richard Green, a resident of New Brunswick, has been charged with five counts of criminal mischief offense and may face additional charges if the crime is upgraded to a bias crime.

Several of the merchants interviewed by the newspaper said they are waiting to get all the facts before deciding whether the motive was anti-Semitism.

David Krul, owner of Jack’s Hardware, said: “The initial reaction was, who did it? Will it happen again? But overall, we were grateful that no one was hurt and the damages were all repairable.”

Authorities are also investigating similar incidents of vandalism at two student Jewish organizations, Rutgers Hillel and the Chabad House, at nearby Rutgers University. Windows were allegedly broken at both locations Nov. 27.
