Claycord Online Museum – YardBirds Home Center In Concord (Plus A Lot Of Snow On Diablo)


Here’s a blast from the recent past.

This photo, which was taken sometime after 1991 but before 1999, shows the old YardBirds Home Center in the Clayton Valley Shopping Center on Ygnacio Valley Rd. in Concord.

Besides YardBirds, the building was previously occupied by Safeway, YardBirds – Home Depot, and Orchard Supply Hardware.


The building now houses Outdoor Supply Hardware.

The shopping center has since been remodeled. As you can see, the mailboxes have been moved and the parking lot has been reconfigured.

Looks like the time there was so much snow on Mt Diablo that I was able to be one of the only people to go snowboarding on the mountain. Which was back in high school before 2000. They had about 2ft near the top, but we could only drive to the mid mountain ranger station, had to park and walk our boards up through all the snow, found a nice clearing build a roll in and a couple jumps as we had a great snow day, wish we would of had digital cameras back them to prove it, we were just broke high schoolers. Good childhood memories, CHEERS!

Damn I miss Yard Birds, this and Home Base. It was a refreshing change rather than going to Home Depot and then Lowes and seeing exactly the the same stuff.
