Testimonials

Cliff's, a longtime San Francisco hardware institution, has an extraordinarily huge selection of almost anything a shopper would want or need. They were very helpful and very attentive to Covid-19 protocols to ensure that everyone remains healthy. I've been shopping at Cliff's since 1978. If Cliff's doesn't have what you want, you probably don't need it. The personnel are exceptionally helpful in locating the items that your looking for.

This store is so much fun. Try to go in and sticking to your list is a challenge I lose every time. Doesn’t matter because everything I buy I love. The selection of fabrics is impressive. I can also appreciate the extra safety and cleaning precautions taken before each person enters the store..

Love to support my local businesses over the big box shops. Cliffs has most everything you could possibly think of for the house and home. From power tools and paint to quality cookware and kids toys and puzzles, I almost always find what I need for tasks and projects around the house. Plus everyone is knowledgeable, friendly, and welcoming.
