GLASSELL PARK — After more than 90 years in business, Verdugo Hardware closed its doors a few weeks ago. Now, the empty hardware store on Eagle Rock Boulevard is up for lease, with the owners asking more than $6,000 a month in rent, according to LoopNet.
The approximately 5,000-square-foot building, located in the 3500 block of Eagle Rock Boulevard, can be combined with an adjacent building for even more space, according to the listing.
What can you do with this building? Ed Rauen, whose family owned the hardware store and property, suggested that it could be used as an art gallery. But several other buildings on Eagle Rock and Verdugo boulevards have been taken over by firms related to entertainment production and design.
