Everything But Water Closes at Broadway Plaza in Walnut Creek


Broadway Plaza, Walnut Creek

Thanks to a reader for sending word that Everything But Water, which opened almost four years ago in downtown Walnut Creek, is no longer listed on the Broadway Plaza directory. It’s not listed on the company store locator either, so considering it’s empty inside, it looks like this is permanently closed. Considering how many stores haven’t opened yet and are even boarded up, it’s difficult to determine whether a store is actually closed these days.

Huge Lines at Recently Reopened Apple Store at Broadway Plaza in Downtown Walnut Creek


Broadway Plaza, Walnut Creek

Only a couple of weeks ago the Apple store at Broadway Plaza in downtown Walnut Creek was boarded up with few people to be seen. As I checked out the area this week, I was amazed by the huge lines on both sides of the Apple store with temperature checks being done and mandatory mask wearing while in line. I guess people really love their Apple gear!

Retail Shopping Slowly Opening Back up in Downtown Walnut Creek


Broadway Pointe, Walnut Creek

The one-two punch of the Covid-19 pandemic with recent looting in downtown Walnut Creek meant lots of closed and boarded up stores over the weekend but there are signs of retail shopping slowly opening up. Out of curiosity I checked out Williams-Sonoma which was open. A warning out front asking people to wear a mask and not to come in with a cough or fever was accompanied with touchless shopping signs inside the store. A few other people were inside as well, but frankly, it’s going to take a while to get used to shopping.
