Thrift Store ThredUp Opening in Downtown Walnut Creek Aug 17th


Broadway Pointe, Walnut Creek

The online thrift store ThredUp is opening their second location in downtown Walnut Creek where H&M used to be in the Broadway Pointe shopping center on August 17th. A sign inside says “ThredUp popup” so this may be a temporary popup shop but there is no mention of this being a popup in this Forbes article, where the founder notes that people in Walnut Creek are “more affluent and suburban, and that store will offer more designer brands and more handbags.” Check out their website here, and enter for your chance at a $500 shopping spree in the Walnut Creek store here.
