Our Former Honey Baked Ham Store at 2190 Geary Near Divisadero Should Be a Medical Building, But What It Is is EMPTY – For Years!

Friday, May 8th, 2015

The only time I hear about Geary and Divisadero, the Great Crossroads of the Western Addition, is when crime occurs on a MUNI bus or at a MUNI bus stop.

And imagine trying to make money slinging hams at this windswept location with no parking.

Somebody should do something with this place, is all I’m saying:

Is NoPA Cooling Down? After Months and Months, Retail Space at 803 Divisadero is Still Available

Thursday, April 23rd, 2015

IDK, if the NoPA part of the Western Addition is so hot hot hot lately, you’d think that this space at 803 Divisadero near Fulton would have gotten a lease deal going by now.

The sign what’s still in the window:

Before, it was Film Yard Video (parting shot: “NETFLIX IS EVIL!”), then it was a illegal condo/supposed tarot reading place (you know, yet another one of those joints), and now it’s a black hole sucking energy from the “DivCo” “Streetscape” just south of North of NoPA.

(Oh what’s that, you’re not interested ‘cuz you want to run a full-on restaurant? Well, 1751 Fulton is just around the corner (sort of ) and it’s still available after years and years of slumber. But instead of $6k per month, it would run you $18k…)

Chain Store Paradise in the Heart of Frisco: “GNC, EUROPEAN WAX CENTER, SUBWAY, CHIPTOLE (Soon), PANERA BREAD”

Monday, April 13th, 2015

Perhaps Frisco just wants to say it doesn’t like chain stores, but it actually loves chain stores? It sure seems that way.

Of course, you won’t find this slice o’ suburbia down at Castro and Market, but head north for a little bit, IDK a mile or two, and bam!, here we are at City Centre, all hidden away, with free parking, you know, galore. Here’s the SUBWAY  sign going up and it won’t be long ’til the Chiptole sign goes up right next door:

And the “anchors” at this mall? Best Buy and Target, natch! (Can the nearest Trader Joe’s be far away? It could, but it’s not. Not at all.)

Now here’s the update: Chiptole won’t be opening this week or this month, it’s safe to say:

“Burritofication” will be “in progress” for some time, it appears…

Target to Open Smaller-Format Stores in San Francisco’s Financial District and Berkeley – New TargetExpress Stores Customize Guest Experience


Target Corp. (NYSE: TGT) today announced plans to open two new TargetExpress stores in San Francisco’s Financial District and Berkeley, Calif., in March 2015. Target’s first TargetExpress store opened this year in Minneapolis, and the San Francisco-area stores will mark the first time Target is expanding this format outside the Minneapolis area.

The San Francisco store will be approximately 18,000 square feet and located at the southwest corner of Bush Street and Sansome Street, next to the Montgomery BART station, in the heart of the financial district. The Berkeley store will be approximately 12,000 square feet and located at the southeast corner of Shattuck Avenue and Allston Way, next to the Downtown Berkeley BART station, near the main entrance to the University of California, Berkeley.

“From listening to our guests at the two San Francisco CityTarget stores, we know the smaller format of TargetExpress will fit right into the busy San Francisco Bay Area lifestyle and enable us to cater to each community’s needs,” said Kamau Witherspoon, senior director, Store Operations, Target.

Target store teams have spent time understanding each local community to determine the right merchandise mix for each store, so both TargetExpress locations will be customized to fit the individual needs of the surrounding neighborhoods. For example, the Bush Street store will feature a large grab-and-go area with sandwiches, salads, breakfast items like yogurt and mid-day snacks for busy commuters on the go. The store will also include a Starbucks and select items from Target’s Made to Matter collection, which features products from San Francisco Bay Area companies like Annies, Yes To and Method.

The Berkeley store will offer a large selection of grocery items, including produce, dairy, frozen, snacks and beverages to serve the students, commuters and residents of Berkeley. Additionally, both new TargetExpress stores will be stocked with essentials in home, beauty and electronics, including a robust assortment of Target’s owned brands. The stores will also include Target’s popular pick-up-in-store service and a pharmacy.

Target opened the first TargetExpress in Minneapolis in July, and has announced plans to open one in the Highland Park area of St. Paul, Minn. in 2015. A third San Francisco Bay Area TargetExpress will also open in 2015, with a location to be announced in the coming months.
