Most businesses have closed following the shelter-in-place order in San Francisco due to the novel coronavirus. But some types of businesses deemed essential will remain open, like grocery stores, pharmacies, restaurants (for delivery only), and hardware stores.
Hardware shops will be critical stops the three-week-long order. You can find everything from home goods—e.g., power tools, screwdrivers, hammers, ballcocks, buzzsaws, and other doodads—to paint and plants at these stores. You can even buy a pair of high heels for drag at Cliff’s Variety. Seriously, hardware stores have almost everything.
Plus, these brick-and-mortar spots will get your home-centric creative juices flowing faster than Pinterest, Bob Villa, and Elle Decor combined.
Listed in no particular order, below we’ve included a handful of our favorite hardware outfits in the city, as well as one major chain for you to peruse.
Note: Please call these stores in advance before heading over.Read More
