Alas, coming soon: another empty downtown storefront with Pottery Barn Kids closing
Pottery Barn Kids is closing its Walnut Creek store, between the Apple Store and Barnes and Noble on South Main Street as of January 17.
A sign in the window said the store will be closed permanently as of Sunday, January 17. Other Pottery Barn Kids locations in the Bay Area in the Stoneridge Shopping Center in Pleasanton and in the Village at Corte Madera.

Or, rather, I have a question.
Has anyone shopped at the Eco Shoppe? It's part of the same company that operates the Vitamin Shoppe next door in Olympic Place.
Olympic Place, and this corner of Mt. Diablo Boulevard and Locust Street have proven to be tricky locations for retailers, despite the presence of the movie theater. Remember Bombay Company, which closed last fall?
I'm pretty sure the Eco Shoppe has had 50-percent off signs in its window ever since it opened. It sells eco-friendly home furnishings, such as bedding, clothing, baby supplies, personal care products, and books and gifts. I've never been in. Maybe I should check it out, and maybe it has nice stuff.
