Eastside PropertyGLASSELL 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.

  2. Creative office space please! We need more post and production facilities on the eastside so we don’t always have to go to work in the valley and hollywood!

    • Fixed.

      “90 years after opening, Verdugo Hardware closed its 90 year old doors a few weeks ago after more than 90 years in business.”

      • “It was 90 years ago this year that 90 years ago the 90-year-old Verdugo Hardware opened it’s then zero-year-old doors; the 90-year-old business closed it’s 90-year-old doors last week after 90 years in business.”

  4. Hello?? We need a cool restaurant here!
