& Co. Hardware started as B. Cohen Hardware back in
1913 at 911 South Street in Philadelphia, originally owned
by Barnett Cohen (Mitchell’s great-grandmother!). It
moved in 1967 to 534 South Street and became P. Cohen
Hardware, moving again in 1975 to 417 South Street, where
it remained until 1996.
Mitchell Cohen, third-generation
owner, was raised in the family business like his father
Marvin and his grandfather Phil. He has been working there
since he was 18 years old. When Cohen & Co. Hardware moved to its current
location at 615 Passyunk Avenue (just-off South Street)
in November 1996, it had been maintained as the
neighborhood staple for hardware, home goods, and services
in a clean, friendly, advice-free, stress-free setting.
Old and new neighbors agree Cohen & Co. is and has
always been an asset to the busy, bustling life in and
around the South Street area. Come in today and Mitchell
will provide you with the answers to your questions and
the hardware for your needs. THANK YOU.
