Innovation Gateway to Travel Opens at Broadway Plaza in Walnut Creek


Broadway Plaza, Walnut Creek

A new travel and luggage store called Innovation Gateway to Travel opened recently where Edwards Everything Travel used to be in Broadway Plaza in Walnut Creek. When I dropped by over the weekend it looked like the same goods were being carried as Edwards, so much so that I thought Edwards managed to reopen. Even the placement was the same. It turns out a company called Innovation Luggage, which has stores around the country under various names, opened the store and hired back the same employees from Edwards to work there.
