Thomas named the restaurant after his fourth child Melinda Lou "Wendy" Thomas.

Click to Enlarge Del Taco - 817 West Hammer Lane - Originally named Casa Del Taco ("House of the Taco"), the first Del Taco restaurant was founded in 1964 in Yermo, California by Ed Hackbarth and David Jameson.

On the first official day of business, Del Taco made $169. Success of the first restaurant led to two in Barstow, one in Needles, and a fifth restaurant in Corona (the first Del Taco with a drive-thru window). Dick Naugle, who installed the kitchen equipment in the Corona store, was impressed by the design and joined Hackbarth and Jameson in the fledgling business.

In 1966, the trio founded Red-E-Food Systems, Inc. with the idea of franchising the Casa Del Taco brand.

Orchard Supply Hardware - 1015 West Hammer Lane / Former Angels / Former Mac Disco - There also was a Herbst Liquor Store and gas station on the Thornton Rd. side.

June. 2013
Stockton’s Orchard Supply Hardware store is not on a newly released list of Orchard stores that will close. All told, Orchard is closing 17 stores in California, including outlets in Fairfield and Vacaville. As part of its ongoing Chapter 11 process, last month, Orchard Supply identified nine stores that will begin closing sales in June. They are in Burbank, Canoga Park, El Cerrito, Lodi, Merced, Santa Ana, Santa Clarita, Torrance and Yuba City. Stores in Vacaville, Fairfield, Citrus Heights, Huntington Beach, Lone Tree, Long Beach, Midtown Los Angeles and Newark began store closing sales on June 29. Lowe’s Companies Inc. will acquire the majority of Orchard’s assets for $205 million in cash, according to a news release. “Lowe’s plans to have Orchard operate as a separate, standalone business, retaining its brand under the leadership of Orchard’s current management team,” the release said. The company said it expects to continue operating Orchard’s remaining 72 stores at the completion of the sale process.

All Orchard Supply Hardware stores in California and elsewhere were closed as of February, 2019, the company’s parent — home-improvement retail giant Lowe’s — announced Wednesday. The chain, also known as OSH, had 99 locations in California, Oregon and Florida, as well as distribution centers, all of which closed. The move comes five years after Lowe’s bought most OSH stores out of bankruptcy following an ill-fated spinoff from the chain’s former owner, Sears Holdings Corp.
