The Art of Shaving is Closing in Broadway Plaza


Broadway Plaza, Walnut Creek

Thanks to a reader for pointing out that The Art of Shaving is closing in Broadway Plaza in Walnut Creek. Note that 40% off sign is only for those who join their “replenishment club“. I wonder if all the construction going on impacted their sales. Too bad they decided to close now because the Apple store is almost finished, the men’s clothing store UNTUCKit opened recently nearby, and another men’s clothing store, Bonobos is set to open nearby as well.

Bonobos coming to Broadway Plaza in Walnut Creek


Broadway Plaza, Walnut Creek

The men’s clothing store Bonobos is coming to Broadway Plaza where Skin|17 used to be near Macy’s, according to the latest city permit information. Check out their online store here. This comes a day after we learned that the children’s clothing store Monica + Andy closed right across from this location. It turns out that the founder of Monica + Andy is the sister of Bonobos founder Andy Dunn.  Before Skin|17, another men’s clothing store, Ministry of Supply, used to be here.

From their website:

We started Bonobos because we couldn’t find pants that fit. They were either way too tight or too boxy. We fixed it. Now we’ve expanded our playbook to shirts and suits.  We started Bonobos because we couldn’t find pants that fit. They were either way too tight or too boxy. We fixed it.

Schedule a one-hour appointment at one of our Guideshop locations. Try on anything you like and have a cold one from the fridge. A knowledgeable Guide will walk you through the entire Bonobos line and help you find your perfect fit. A Guide will place your order and it will be shipped directly to your home or office. Walk out with your hands free.
