Have you been to an Orchard Supply Hardware(OSH) store lately? Do you not know where one is locally? There is one closer than you think.
In 2015, there are 5 new stores opening and I got a chance to check out the latest store in Cerritos, on my quest to find some decor for spring.
I have not spent much time in OSH as it is better known because there was not one close by. I also have other do-it-yourself stores close by that I could get lost in. What makes OSH different than other home improvement stores?
It is a store for the average home owner versus contractor store. While we enjoy many things about other warehouse stores, I find it hard to find someone to help me and I often get lost in the larger stores.
The new Cerritos store is not small by any means, being 40,000 sqft but it is organized in a way that is user friendly. every aisle has a purpose and well labeled. There is even an aisle for watcha-ma-call-its!
Need a key? The key cutting center is right where you walk in so it's an easy in and out.
There is a large paint sample area where you can purchase a small amount of a color instead of a whole gallon. Come back in a couple months and there are talks of monthly kids crafts as well.
There is a great gardening area with a large quantity of seeds to full grown plants. Did you know if you buy a plant and pot, they will re-pot it for free for you?
This patio set was just one that I was eyeing for my backyard.
Thinking about those Fathers Day gifts yet? These are my favorites.
Craft items will always perk up any yard and I adored these gorgeous birdhouses!
There was so much to see and all practical for the average home-owner. I need to go back to see all that I missed and since I have one close to my house now, it will make getting my house fixed up for Spring much easier.
