Cohen & 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.
