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.
Consider this a fair warning for the madness to come when CB2 opens its doors to throngs of fiscally irresponsible, bridge-and-tunneling dorm dwellers on Thursday, July 31st at 10 a.m. (34 Ellis Street) No word on the swag, kids, though we can't imagine they wouldn't throw in at least a votive candle or 10 percent-off coupon— something to thank you for braving the BART on a weekday morning. In other news: Children at heart, bid a fair adieu to the Disney Store, which was sporting one very tacky plastic banner over the weekend: "SALE: Last 3 Days!!" Sorry, Mouseketeers, but it was. We welcome you, Morty, with open arms.
