Cole Hardware Readies for Rockridge Opening

Saturday, December 13, 2014

Contacted by The Rockridge News for details about the January Rockridge store opening, Cole Hardware owner Dave Karp reported the following: "On our first day, Friday, January 2, we'll open at 9 a.m." After that, he said, the store will be open, Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. until 8 p.m., and Saturdays and Sundays, from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m.

The store will keep limited holiday hours, but, Karp said, "We are open every day of the year for neighborhood convenience. For example, on Thanksgiving our stores were open from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. We were very busy with grateful customers purchasing cooking supplies, and last minute fix-it items."

Karp said the January opening will be low-key. The family plans a grand opening in February on a date to be announced.
