OSH Gone B’Gosh!

Orchard Supply Hardware is closing it’s doors.  I find this incredibly sad.  It was purchased by Lowe’s some time back and Lowe’s has decided to shutter all the OSH stores.  I’ve been shopping at our local OSH for 30 years, ever since we moved to this dusty town.  I went to the store this morning to see what was left.  Everything is 40-60% off but there wasn’t much left.  I saw a few long-time employees slowly dismantling the shelving and one cashier surfing her iPhone.  It was a sad sight.  I turned around and walked out.  I’ll miss you OSH.  Say hello to Sears when you see it in the land of broken dreams.

One thought on “OSH Gone B’Gosh!

  1. Yes,…the same rolling “wave” that will eventually take out most every “brick & mortar” store. Think about what the next stage will likely be: there won’t even be the few “big box” stores like Amazon, anymore. You’ll just download a file from them and replicate whatever it is you need, right on your own home. It all coming, if we don’t destroy ourselves first…
