Timing couldn’t be any better! Today my mom said good bye to her job at Orchard after 13+ years with the company. Unfortunately Orchard filed BK a couple months ago and closed its doors down for good, and many people where laid off. Good news was my broker promotion was wrapped up in time and I promised my mom she would never have to work anymore, and that I would retire her. Now it’s time to get to work!!! #orchardsupplyhardware #lastday #earlyretirement #igotyourback #timetogrind

Going to miss this place and all the people I've met along the journey. Couldn't have asked for a better crew. Thank you all for everything, and I hope we all will keep in touch!

My own potting bench sign from Orchards Supply Store as a keepsake. It was a steal for $20! Now my boys really have to build me a vegetable garden bench. Get to it @antbrionz #orchardsupplyhardware #goingtoagoodhome

People and preservationists in the South Bay are looking for the beloved, vintage neon sign that vanished without a trace. The sign once welcomed customers to the oldest Orchard Supply Hardware location in San Jose, at the corner of West San Carlos Street and Royal Avenue. Santa Clara County officials told ABC7 News the sign also served as a beacon for the once booming canning business. Tap the link in our bio for more on its disappearance.

One last baby from OSH before they completely closed down. 😞 I'll grow this one big and strong in their honor.

Today is the last day I wear this shirt. After 3-1/2 years here the doors are closing. It has been a great place to work even after the problems. I honestly am going to miss this place. #lastday #osh #orchardsupplyhardware @orchardsupply

So sad that OSH is closing. Even with a couple of months’ notice, it still makes me sad. It was so great to have this store nearby for the past 5.5 years that we’ve owned our house. Such great service and great seasonal decorations. You’ll be missed, @orchardsupply. 😢 #OSH #OrchardSupplyHardware #LastDay #Closing #Sad

Well Orchard Supply Hardware of Cottle Road, you have come to an end! Behind me is a trash can that I got for $40 that allowed me to fill it with anything I can find in the store for that price. I came out with over $350 worth of items for 40 bucks. That's incredible right?! And then I have these metal bins that held heavy duty Nails! $10 for the whole set! A really good steel! I'm going to give those to my father. He loves bins! 
@waldow_the_apache_bear_jew, thanks for telling me about osh!!!

Today is tracy stores last day. I wish I could be there to close the store with the rest of my orchard family. I’ve learned so much from this company that I will carry on with me, and gained friendships that will last a life time. So many mixed feelings but the one that stands out the most is sadness. Working outside with nature and not stuck inside was the best thing. Nursery for the win 🤘🏻 good luck to all my orchard family. Bleed green. #nursery #orchardsupplyhardware #oshmoments #store371

Final day of #orchardsupplyhardware Blackstone. In 1990 I was hired at age 16 to retrieve carts from this cart return corral.

So this just happened... Orchard Supply Hardware is closing and today is their final day. Everything was 90% off EXCEPT fixtures. We picked up a couple of large beds for our soon to be vegetable and herb plants, and a few fly trap refills. 
Went to stand in line to pay and a sales lady makes an announcement. Fill your carts with anything and its all for $40. I say anything? She said yes! I said even the bird house? She said YES!!! I run to the bird house and hugged it.. claiming it mine! 
Manager comes by and says fixtures are not included. Sales lady said, I messed up and told her it was.

Bottom line... walked out with my fly trap refills, 2 large planter beds and a huge bird house for $40.00!!! SCORE!!! #orchardsupplyhardware #osh #happybirthdaytome #nowwheretoputit

Jubo Osh Tee is now up on the site! Paying homage to a business that was founded in San Jose. This isn’t just a t-shirt, this is a collectible item. Cop yours today!

Moby the Ram on the town
I was mistaken thinking the Moby series would only last 24hrs, so apologies for dragging it out but there’s just too much to share of this sweet and special boy’s life.
•
Errands are a necessity and Moby was such a good sport going here there and everywhere with me. Admittedly, everything took a lot longer than normal but it was a-ok because it was never a burden to talk about Moby and talk sheep.
His favorite store to visit by far was @Unleashed Thousand Oaks. Every visit was a lovefest. In fact, it was difficult to see the disappointment on the employees faces if he wasn’t with me and to this day they still ask about him when I stop by.

I’M BOYCOTTING LOWE’S!!! I just learned today that Lowe’s @loweshomeimprovement, the owners of Orchard Supply Hardware an AMAZING hardware store founded in Campbell, is closing ALL 99 LOCATIONS. Why is Lowe’s closing all 99 OSH locations? It’s not because OSH is losing money. It’s not because OSH isn’t profitable. It’s because the higher quality of service customers received at OSH was taking away business from Lowe’s stores. SHAME ON LOWE’S! Rather than raise their standards and improve customer service they are SHUTTING DOWN a Bay Area original. I personally will NEVEr AGAIN shop at Lowe’s!!! 😡🤬👎 #shame #lowes #boycott #orchardsupplyhardware #storeclosing #campbell #cityofcampbell #bayareaevents #why #notcool #badmove #badpeople #bayareaoriginal #madashell #badchoices

Henry tagged along with my dad and I for old time’s sake when we went to Orchard to check out what’s left. Not much, I can tell you that. I’ve always loved taking the dogs there because the employees are super nice and it’s a great place to train. It was actually the first, if not one of the first stores, Henry went to as a puppy. I still remember how he rolled around in the cashiers lap when she kneeled down to pet him. I’ll miss going there once it’s closed... Anyway, Henry did really good walking around! He got pet by a couple employees, searched for some treats, and just had fun wandering around with us.

Took Mr. Debo out to socialize at Orchard Supply & I’m seriously still so sad that Orchard is going out of business 😭. They’ve always treated me and pups so nicely any time we visited.
•
Here’s a tip for those who would love to take their dogs out to socialize, but are afraid of how they’d act.
•
If you’re not providing your dog(s) with structure INSIDE your house first, then you can’t expect them to behave outside of the house.
•
For the past few days, I’ve been providing Debo with a lot of structure..and rules..and boundaries. He knows the drill now. He understands where he can & can’t go because I’ve communicated with him clearly.
•
Taking him to Orchard went smoothly because he trusted me. I asked him to hop on the bench for some pics 😬 let’s appreciate his derp face ❤️.
•
You and your dog(s) can get there, too.
•
Feel free to tag any friends that may need some guidance with their pups! #ayumisdoggotips

Went to OSH today to replace a faulty shower head and walked through the paint section. 
For many years of requesting Montana and Iron lak cans they start to carry them as they shutter their business. At a 40% clearance I grabbed a few cans for a few pieces. Dumb luck on a bad situation. I'm bummed to see Osh go.

OSH store closing sale means @forneyind shopping spree! Sale has been slowly increasing over the last few weeks. Currently at 40-80% off. I also picked up a bunch of steel at 80% off. OSH is pretty overpriced to begin with but this sale actually makes everything a good deal. 10lb rolls of welding wire for $24 each? Can’t complain about that. 👍🏻

Halloween 🎃... what a fun time of year. It seems my collection of decorations seem to grow every year. I am such a sucker for the after Halloween/Thanksgiving clearance sales. I opened my boxes only to find treasures I totally forgot I bought! Wahoo!! Although I really enjoy decorating for Halloween, I often find myself a little sad having to say goodbye to the long warm summer nights.... #halloweendecor #fallfun #livingroomdecor #homeandgarden #orchardsupplyhardware #target #goodbyesummer #hearthandhand #designhome #designspiration #holidaydecor #lovemylife #blessed

😭I bought my last garden plant @orchardsupply today. #sage

Sage is great fried in a little brown butter. Should I candy some sage?? I will ponder it.

All of my most awesome garden plants and garden #sageadvice ( outside of the knowledge my gramps had) was from the fine experts at multiple #orchardsupplyhardware stores. Thank you for serving your communities like family. You will be greatly missed.

Pictured is an #osh outside my #community in Fremont ( I was in the area). I still don't believe I will ever forgive you @loweshomeimprovement. My community garden professionals will be gone now.

My new loyalty by default goes to Homer & @homedepot. Buh bye @loweshomeimprovement

Yesterday #wifey and I headed out to exercise a personal/family ritual: the Saturday #hardware store run. We were saddened to find that not one such store, (1: our favorite San Carlos Orchard Supply Hardware store in San José) but two (2: the Ace Hardware store at Lincoln and Curtner, which has been there since my childhood) were recently #closed for good. We finally found one that was open (3: my old weekly haunt, the #OSH at Blossom Hill and Kooser), but also soon to be history. I had to take several moments to process the sinking feeling. Orchard Supply Hardware is a San José hometown institution. Founded as a co-op by local #orchardists during the Great Depression, “Osh” eventually opened its first retail store at the San Carlos location in 1946, which till this month remained open under the iconic original sign (4, credit Wikipedia) that still graces the spot where San Carlos overpasses the tracks. The store became a chain that spread across the country. It was obtained by Lowe’s a couple years ago. In August this year, Lowe’s announced a shuttering of all Orchard locations. The San Carlos location was staffed by lovely helpful folk, many elderly and middle-aged, who helped me get my home ready for my bride two years ago. It was permanently closed this month, ahead of schedule. OSH and that Ace shop were some of the few smaller stores remaining in contrast to their bland, impersonal big-box competitors, and are missed. #hardwarestore #sanjoseca #sanjose #westcoast #boycottlowes #orchardsupplyhardware #acehardware
