Orchard Supply Hardware will open a 40,000-square-foot store in the Metro 580 shopping center at 4555 Rosewood Drive in Pleasanton later this year.
Located along the I-580 corridor at Hacienda Drive, Metro 580 boasts a selection of national retailers including Kohl's, Walmart and Party City as well as smaller retailers and restaurants.
Orchard, once owned by Sears and now owned by home improvement retailer Lowe's, has stores in Dublin, Livermore and San Ramon, making this its fourth Tri-Valley store. The retail hardware company, headquartered in San Jose, has more than 70 stores located throughout California and Oregon.
The firm, headquartered in San Jose, will move into the former Sport Chalet building, turning the scuba diving pool into a 5,620-square-foot garden nursery.
Its stores feature an innovative service area called the Workbench, which gives customers access to trained professionals offering tool and knife sharpening, re-screening, lock re-keying, pipe threading; and conduit, chain, cable, pipe or rope cutting.
Jenny Soo, associate planner for the city of Pleasanton, said Orchard plans to have its new store open well before the Christmas and New Year's holidays.
