Good News for Our Mission Store Patrons: Cole Hardware Is Coming to SOMA!

We have scoured the Mission corridor for new locations in order to be as close to our Mission Street patrons as possible. The closest suitable space we could find will become home to our newest store at 9th and Folsom Streets in SOMA. We hope you will reconnect with us there if you haven’t already been patronizing our other City stores. The location on 9th Street is a short 10-minute car ride from the Mission District or a 20-minute ride on the 14, followed by a two-block walk. Please come and say hello when we open early next year! We miss you and need your continued support of our business.

The building that housed the Mission Street store, as you know, has been totally demolished. The property owner is unsure of his future plans at this point. If we have the opportunity to purchase the property at an affordable price, or if we are offered a reasonable lease in a new building there, we most certainly will open up once again in our previous space. In the meantime, we will continue to watch for space and hopefully will be part of the Mission community once again.

Important info for our Mission store patrons: If you have not yet shopped at one of our other stores since the fire, and you wish to continue to stay connected with us by receiving the Hardware Hotline in the mail, you must e-mail us at, letting us know your Rewards number or phone number and your name and address. If you prefer, you can also sign up to receive the Hardware Hotline and other digital communications via e-mail, if you aren’t signed up already. You can do this at In the meantime, we’ll keep you posted on any developments of interest as they unfold. I thank you for all of your heartfelt messages of support and friendship, as well as for 32 wonderful years. It has been a privilege to be part of your community. We miss you.
