Orchard Supply Hardware to open new store in Los Angeles

Orchard Supply Hardware, a home and garden retailer, has signed a new lease to bring its neighborhood hardware and garden supply format to 415 South La Brea in Los Angeles, California.

In conjunction with the new opening, Orchard will close its existing Hollywood location at 5525 Sunset Boulevard by early 2013. The La Brea store will encompass approximately 30,080 square feet of indoor selling space and approximately 3,800 square feet of outdoor nursery and garden space, designed in Orchard's new neighborhood store format. The building will also provide roof top parking for customers. Orchard expects construction to begin in spring of 2013.

Mark Baker, President and CEO, stated, "We are thrilled about the new store, which is ideally located in a thriving residential/urban setting. The La Brea area is undergoing a significant revitalization effort and is transforming into an increasingly pedestrian-friendly street. New residential and commercial construction is underway, including a number of mixed-use complexes featuring apartments, ground-floor retail and pedestrian space. We're excited to bring our neighborhood store format to those who live and work in the Mid-Wilshire area of Los Angeles, while continuing to serve Orchard's existing Hollywood store customers in a significantly enhanced shopping environment."
