Unfortunately B'game has slipped back to a one hardware store town. It may seem like a small thing to some, especially those who aren't DIYers, but having easy access to a place where you can get a 8/32" threaded screw in less than half an hour can be key to keeping one's weekend chores on track. I'm thrilled that we still have the Ace Hardware in the old Kern's Jewelry space (anyone notice that the Kern's sign is still on the back wall?).
But I'm sure people in the north end will miss the store on B'way as they have to make the trek to the Avenew or up to Orchard Supply in Millbrae. Here's the closed store to remind you of what's gone.
I wonder if the sign will live on as a reminder?
