Mid-Market Renaissance Continues: Blick Art Materials Opens Today at 979 Market Near Sixth

Thursday, August 5th, 2010

Or “Central Market,” that name works too. This deal has been in the works for a while:

Blick Art Materials‘ brand new bigger and better location is in the Central Market area of San Francisco at 6th and Market Street.”

Well, Blick’s has just told all the Yelpers this A.M. that their latest formula retail outlet is now open for bidness, so it must be true:

“We’ve Moved!  Come visit us in our NEW location at 979 Market Street!”

And you get free parking (somewhere), if you’re not just a looky-loo:

“We will validate your first hour of parking with a purchase of $25 or more!”

The finishing touches went on just a few days back:

Anyway, the kids from ArtSpan are going welcome the joint to the neighborhood:
