    They’re like… a San Diego institution!

    Next closest hardware store I think must be a Home Depot — I think there’s one *waaaay* down broadway, or I suppose the one near the Sports Arena is close-ish too.

    They have a map to the new store on their web site.

    I guess they figure that the Hillcrest Ace has it covered. Damn, I miss those commercials.

    I’ve known San Diego Hardware since moving here in 1981 and I’m sorry to see them move. Numberous times I found those hard-to-find screws, nuts or whatever in the basement even though I worried that it wasn’t so profittable for them. Things change and this one of those things that I wish didn’t. Many thanks to them for being there as long as they were.

    I believe they are moving to Kearny Mesa area… Also, from what I have heard from others, they really didn’t sell a lot of “hardware” in the True Value, hammers and nails kinda way… more geared to contractors and designers and remodelers.

    I still think those downtowners need a hardware store, not to mention more than one grocery store!

    [...] In a follow-up to our May 2006 discussion Nearly Empty Downtown and a few comments, downtown San Diego will finally be getting a 2nd grocery store. This Friday at 7:45 AM there will a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for Albertsons. The new grocery store will be on the corner of 14th Street and Market. That is the south east edge of East Village. [...]
