Today I was greeted by a former YardBIRDS employee at the Walnut Creek Ace Hardware Store.
Located on Mt. Diablo Blvd across from Pier One, this is a complete hardware store and much more.
Directions: Take 680 North to the Olympic Offramp, Turn right and immediately turn left at the first stop light. That street dead ends into Mt Diablo and you will have a stop light for your left turn onto Mt. Diablo Blvd. A short block west and you will find convenient parking at the WC Ace Hardware.
I recommend a visit!! It will remind you of Simon's of yesteryear.
