Mid-Market Renaissance: Know Your Art Supply Houses – Pearl and Blick – One Old and One New

Thursday, August 4th, 2011

Which store is the “economic catalyst” of Mid-Market?

This is a trick question, as one of them is an empty brokedown palace and the other merely a replacement, more or less.

How could this situation, switching one store for the other, possibly change anything?

What has Blick done for Mid Market that Pearl hasn’t done, that Pearl didn’t do?

That’s a mystery to me.

It wasn’t to our jackass former Mayor, apparently.

But it’s a mystery to me.

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:

(Check out this bit from Angela Hart at SF Public Press to see for yourself if the mid-Market is about to take off.)

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

All right, Pearl’s is all gone but now Blick’s is here. Is that a fair exchange?

Dennis Herrera Throws Down – Office Depot Audit Reveals Millions in Overcharges

Monday, December 21st, 2009

San Francisco’s recent audit of office materials supplier Office Depot has prompted City Attorney Dennis J. Herrera to take action today. See the deets below and the .pdf after the jump.

And follow all the action on the Twitter.

San Francisco’s Happy Warrior certainly is unhappy with the Office Depot today.

Herrera Issues Demand Letter to Office Depot in Wake of S.F. Controller’s Audit

City Attorney prepared to ‘vigorously pursue’ $5.75 million in overcharges plus interest, costs and attorney’s fees

City Attorney Dennis Herrera has issued a demand letter to Office Depot expressing his intention to “vigorously pursue” at least $5.75 million in overcharges together with interest, attorney’s fees, and costs incurred by the City in conducting the audit. The demand letter follows the release of an exhaustive audit report by the Office of City Controller Ben Rosenfield. The Controller’s 96-page audit concluded that, among other overcharges, the Boca Raton, Fla.-based office products supplier failed to provide the City with contractually mandated discounts for items covered by the 5-year contract, which was valued at some $18 million.

Wrote Herrera: “Any resolution of this matter must include compensation to the City for the costs of the audit, and for attorney’s fees, as well as full reimbursement for price overcharges, with interest…If the City is unable to obtain a satisfactory informal resolution of this matter, I will not hesitate to pursue the matter in court. Further, if court action becomes necessary, rest assured that my office will vigorously pursue the City’s claims to the fullest, including seeking civil penalties and debarment, if appropriate.”
