Bringing you the latest in retail therapy around the Bay Area.
Local brand Taylor Stitch, best known for its custom shirt services and location next to Four Barrel on Valencia, is opening up a second location this June, this time on Chestnut Street in the Marina. Expect lots of T.S. wares for the gents, and, for the first time, ladies, too.
Further South, things are really heating up in Hayes Valley. The new and improved Reliquary is now open at 544 Hayes (in the former Nida space). Meanwhile, we told you about eco-friendly boutique Convert moving onto the strip, and now a location has been announced! Look out for the sustainable shop to move into the old Nomads space at 556 Hayes Street.
Public Bikes has also taken a liking to the 'hood, opening just down the block at 549 Hayes Street, where Room Service used to be. This is now the only Public location in the city (the South Park and Valencia locales are no more).
And even further South, it looks like a new retail space is being built in Noe Valley, just paces away from the busy 24th and Church Street intersection. The mutli-level space is still all wood and beams, but has a sign out front recruiting retailers.
Local sustainable brand Amour Vert (which is also opening a shop on Hayes Street) is now being carried at Bloomingdales. Come party with the founders at the retail giant this Saturday, 2:00 to 5:00 p.m. on the third floor.
Also at Bloomingdales (for a limited time), a special edition tote bag featuring a nautical-inspired design by Gaultier is being sold to raise awareness and funds to help find a cure for HIV/AIDS. 100 percent of the $35 purchase price goes to amfAR’s life-saving research programs.
