Two new hardware and garden stores seek 160 employees


Orchard Supply Hardware Stores Corp., which operates neighborhood hardware and garden stores focused on paint, repair and the backyard, is hosting a hiring event at the Oregon Zoo’s Cascade Crest Banquet Center on Tuesday and Wednesday.

From 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. both days, the event will help Orchard Supply fill about 160 positions at its first Oregon stores. The two new stores are slated to open in April and will be located at 10860 S.W. Barnes Road in Cedar Mill and at 9770 S.W. Scholls Ferry Road in Tigard.

“We’re thrilled to be coming to the area and are excited to build the staff for our first Oregon stores,” said Joe Kelley, Oregon regional manager for Orchard Supply Hardware. “At Orchard, we take pride in delivering a fun and engaging customer experience, which is made possible by the people who make up our teams.

“We’ll be looking for energetic individuals who really enjoy helping others and are committed to customer service.”

The company is looking for about 80 full- and part-time positions at each store. Representatives will be looking for department leaders, customer service associates, bicycle repair experts and cashiers.
