It’s been over two years since Boudin Bakery & Cafe closed in Broadway Plaza in Walnut Creek due to the redevelopment taking place but they’ll be reopening in early summer in the spot you see above, right near Nordstrom. As you can see in the photo below and this Craigslist posting, they are “now hiring”. Who’s ready for some clam chowder in a sourdough bread bowl?

The men’s shoe store Allen Edmonds, which we learned would be coming to Broadway Plaza in Walnut Creek last October, is getting ready to open soon as you can see by the newly revealed storefront signage. This is one of the last locations remaining to open in the newly developed front section. (Nespresso is the other remaining spot opening soon). Then there is the backside of Broadway Plaza with a whole new slew of stores getting ready to open over the summer.

Last October we learned that Arhaus Furniture would be opening in Broadway Plaza in Walnut Creek, and thanks to a reader for pointing out this Craigslist job post that mentioned, “the store is expected to open on June 22nd of 2016“. The Arhaus Walnut Creek web page indicates a July opening. Since the location will be on the backside of the plaza this means this section will be reopening within the next couple of months after having been closed for over two years.

The coastal lifestyle brand Coast by Coast, in collaboration with Lou & Grey, displayed their swimwear and lifestyle clothing from a 1972 VW bus in Broadway Plaza in Walnut Creek over the weekend. Check out their website here. This was a fun and unexpected display to see at a giant shopping plaza such as Broadway Plaza. I hope this happens more often!

Friday Question of the Day – Has Broadway Plaza Nicked too Many Downtown Walnut Creek Stores?

The backside of Broadway Plaza is getting ready to open soon and we now know that the shopping center has enticed plenty of stores to leave their downtown Walnut Creek locations for the shopping center, also located in downtown:

Is this hurting downtown Walnut Creek (outside Broadway Plaza) or is it helping downtown with all the new stores opening up?
