Los Feliz — The two-story Orchard Supply Hardware store, which held a grand opening celebration less than six months ago, will be closing as the entire chain ceases operations, officials announced today.
The surprise announcement came from its corporate parent, the Lowes home improvement chain, that bought Orchard Supply, known to many as OSH, out of bankruptcy court five years ago.
Lowes officials said the 99-store Orchard Supply chain generated only a fraction of overall sales and was not performing well, according to the L.A. Times.
OSH stores will be holding closeout sales until they close for good by the end of February 2019. Employees of the Los Feliz and other OSH stores will be provided with outplacement services and be given “priority status” at employment at Lowes stores, the company said.
