Cole Hardware Readies for Rockridge Opening
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.
