Last November we learned that The Shade Store would be replacing the ice cream shop Smitten in La Fiesta Square with a showroom and their bold signage is now up. Check out their website here where you can shop online for shades, blinds and drapery. As an ice cream fan where am I going to go when I’m in Lafayette?

The painting studio Color Me Mine will be closing this December at La Fiesta Square in Lafayette. Note that their Walnut Creek location will remain open.
From an email:
Our business is very much involved in planning and takes time for people to get their things back. Also, everything painted in the Lafayette location that is not picked up will not be transferred anywhere, they will be donated or disposed of. The second week of December will be the last week we will accept painters and then the third week will be the last week to pick up items(items left at Lafayette will NOT be available anywhere else), I want to be closed before the holidays. Our Walnut Creek and various other locations will remain open, and also franchising opportunities are currently available!
Last year we learned that Wells Fargo closed at the corner of Mt. Diablo Blvd. and Moraga Rd. in downtown Lafayette and there are plans for La Fiesta Square to expand all the way from Luxe Home by Douglah Designs to this corner. With the potential for up to 30,000 sf of retail space on three levels according to the development page, I believe this will have the most visibility of all retails areas in Lafayette and look forward to finding out what opens here. What store would you most like to see?
After four years serving ice cream made with liquid nitrogen, Smitten Ice Cream closed over the weekend at La Fiesta Square in Lafayette. It’s not all bad news though; According to a letter posted inside all Lafayette, Moraga, Walnut Creek and Concord residents will get 25% off purchases from their Rockridge location through the end of the year. Check out their flavors here.
Why did they leave out Orinda and Pleasant Hill residents? Orinda is part of Lamorinda but maybe they figured it’s too close to Rockridge to offer a discount. Why did they skip Pleasant Hill? Maybe that’s an oversight…
