FAIRFIELD and VACAVILLE -- Going-out-of-business sales are set to start Thursday at Orchard Supply Hardware stores in these two Solano County cities, while four others in the North Bay will be among 72 OSH location remaining open under Lowe's Home Improvement's successful $205 million Bankruptcy Court bid for the business.

Remaining open in the North Bay will be stores in Santa Rosa, Petaluma, San Rafael and Napa, according to court documents filed earlier this week.

The Solano stores -- 1500 Oliver Rd. in Fairfield and 220 Peabody Rd. in Vacaville -- were among 15 OSH locations in Northern and Southern California, including three in the Bay Area, to be marked for shutdown, according to a court filing.

San Jose-based OSH on June 17 filed for Bankruptcy Court reorganization, announced Lowe's as the "stalking horse" bidder for most of the assets and liabilities. OSH closed two other stores in June, according to the company.

A court auction of OSH assets was set for Aug. 15. Lowe's had the only qualifying bid by the Aug. 9 court deadline, according to OSH.

A hearing is set for Aug. 20 to approve the sale.
