Storefronting is Curbed's regular look at the changing retail scene, with an emphasis on how it impacts neighborhoods. Opening a store? See a store that's opening? Send the deets. We have a special place in our hearts for those who also include digital photos.
It is confirmed: The Disney store on Powell is so gone. Why, exactly, is unclear (maybe because they sell Disney swag?) though we do know that employees were given four weeks' notice to hustle new retail jobs in a tanking economy. Nice. Popular opinion (a.k.a. a couple of tipsters) seems to indicate a want for even more luxury retail on that corner. (And here we were expecting a crack op.) Who's edging out the Disney store? Guesses in the box. Tips, the Curbed SF inbox.
