The furniture store Lovesac, featuring bean bag chairs and a modular sectional couch system, opened a new showroom at Broadway Plaza in Walnut Creek. It’s hard to tell by looking at the photo below but the bean bag chair at right is gigantic. And that’s not even the largest size! If I had a stack burning a hole in my pocket I would definitely get this. Check out their online shop here.
Napa-based fast casual restaurant Heritage Eats opened over the weekend at Broadway Plaza in Walnut Creek. As you can see there is a small outdoor patio in front. Check out their Walnut Creek menu here.

Rituals unveils these moments and reminds you to experience them with joy. Whether it’s taking a nice long bath or creating a homey atmosphere with the rich scent of Asian incense, Rituals allows you to find happiness in the smallest of things.
In April we learned that the clothing store Johnny Was would be coming to Broadway Plaza in Walnut Creek and the coming soon signage is now up showing they’ll be opening next month in September. Now that Apple has reopened this part of Broadway Plaza looks completely different with a wide open space making this a great time and location to open. Check out the Johnny Was website here.
In March we learned that Soft Surroundings, a St. Louis-based women’s catalog retailer would be coming to Broadway Plaza in Walnut Creek and the coming soon signage is now up next to Aldo and although their website still indicates a fall opening, the signage that is up now points to a winter, 2018 opening. Check out their online catalog here.
The Apple store reopened in Broadway Plaza over the weekend across the street from their previous location in downtown Walnut Creek. Obviously it’s a beautiful store with tall ceilings, and wrap-around, floor-to-ceiling windows allowing plenty of light in. The front of the store showcases their products while the back of the store features a Genius “grove” instead of “bar” to handle support issues with a giant LCD wall screen splitting the two sections up. The LCD screen area hosts various sessions to learn about Apple products and techniques like photography, music, coding and more. Check out and reserve current sessions here. The reason why it feels so spacious inside is thanks to the basement that was added to store their inventory etc.
Right outside in back are several tables with the patio area extending all the way out to the remodeled fountain and benches. Interestingly the Apple logo at the old store was blacked out but protruded nonetheless; check out this photo and more inside photos after the jump. What do you think of the new store? Has it met your expectations?
Along with the new Apple store opening at Broadway Plaza tomorrow in downtown Walnut Creek are new electronic displays with advertisements on one side and a clickable store directory on the other. I wonder what operating system they’re running, not MacOS? Maybe Apple should start selling an embedded OS to compete with Linux… 😜
