Join Us at Our Anniversary Sale!


At Cole Hardware, we feel incredibly blessed that after more than five decades and the countless changes we see every day in the Bay Area, we are still a part of this wonderful City, and now operating in Oakland’s Rockridge neighborhood, too. And we’re excited about our new North Beach and SOMA stores opening in the new year!

Our founder, Dave Karp, often regaled us with his fond memories of serving the “love children” of the 1960s and the starving, yet-to-be-discovered musicians of the Haight-Ashbury, including frequent shopper Janice Joplin. (It took Dave a while to figure out why sales of alligator clips were so brisk!) We’ll be celebrating Dave’s legacy this year in our groovy, limited-edition tie-dye T-shirts, created especially for us by artist Norma Brooks. Pick up one of these one-of-a-kind artworks for $24.99, available in men’s sizes small–XL.

Join us as we celebrate 55 years since Dave’s purchase of our flagship store (which has been in Cole Valley since the 1920s). While we will be celebrating with a 20% off sale all day, from 5:00 pm to closing we will be serving our signature Cutting Edge wine, gourmet chocolates, and homemade brownies. (No, not those kind.)

You’ll also receive a free, reusable Cole Hardware shopping bag. Take advantage of this opportunity to pick up last-minute gifts on your shopping list — or to just get started if you’ve procrastinated. Please stop by! Peace — on earth, that is!
