Located in the historic Green Shutter Hotel in downtown Hayward, the locally owned and operated bookstore sells news and used books and more.
As a hardware store, Orchard Supply has a good selection of the gear a gardener or landscaper needs to make gardens flourish. It carries sprayers, tools, spreaders, carts, weed eaters, lawn mowers, and fertilizers. However, its selection of plants is more limited than most large outdoor nurseries. It does carry flowers, vegetables, and bare root plants seasonally.
