Four high-end stores and a craft ice cream shop are opening in the Town & Country Shopping Center in Palo Alto, a retail broker announced yesterday (March 22).
The stores – Faherty, Pact, Evereve and Coyuchi – will sell clothing and household goods with a focus on sustainable materials and fair trade practices, shopping center spokeswoman Alison Stripling said in a statement.
“They’re exactly in line with what Peninsula residents and families want to wear: understated, upscale clothing manufactured with our planet’s health in mind,” retail broker Brian Bokman said.
A fifth clothing company, Marine Layer, is doubling its square footage, Bokman said.
The Penny Ice Creamery will be opening its fifth store, and its first outside of Santa Cruz County.
The store changes menus constantly, creates its flavors from scratch and pasteurizes its own milk, Stripling said.
Gott’s Roadside is also planning to expand its space by 605 square feet, Stripling said.
If these stores fail, they shouldn’t blame a lack of local support if their products are overpriced. Keep your prices in line with what they charge online, and you should survive.
I still miss The Cookbook.
Me too, Melissa! Sometimes a good old fashioned diner type restaurant is a great thing!
