Sunvalley Shopping Center, Concord

San Jose-based Frujuice is opening in a permanent spot on the second floor of the Sunvalley shopping center in Concord. Check out their menu (towards the bottom) here. I look forward to trying the Juicy Spicy Papaya dish/drink!

From their website:

Ortega produce began to sell fruit at the San Jose Capital Flea Market. Years later getting a permanent location at the San Jose Berryessa Flea Market where the opportunity was presented to Mr. and Mrs. Ortega. Ortega Produce would later be known for being the first traditional Mexican fruits stand to San Jose and to the Bay Area. Ortega Produce was the first to introduce Fruta Fresca inspired by the street fruit vendors from Mexico in a cup topped off with chili salt and lemon cocos helados fresh coconuts and Aguas Frescas made with fresh natural fruit juices 100% mexico style.

Bebe Closing in Sunvalley Shopping Center in Concord


Sunvalley Shopping Center, Concord

Last week we learned that the clothing store Kit and Ace would be closing their physical stores in the US to focus online and now another clothing store, Bebe, is doing the same. As you can see in the above photo, Bebe is closing their Sunvalley shopping center location in Concord. According to this LA Times article, Bebe is closing their stores to focus on online sales as well.

It’s hard to be a brick and mortar store in the online world we live in these days. How can you compete when there is greater selection and cheaper prices online? On the other hand, it’s great to be able to try on clothing before buying. I know some people buy different sizes, colors and styles to find the right one and return the rest but I never felt comfortable doing that. What do you think?

Earlier this year we learned that the entertainment center Round 1 Bowling & Amusement would be opening in the Sunvalley Shopping Center in Concord and they have now opened. (Thanks to a reader for pointing this out). In addition to arcade, bowling and karaoke rooms, they also offer billiards, a couple of ping pong tables, darts, a food and drink section and more, including purikura machines. It’s huge! I noticed quite a few Japanese imported arcade games. The amount of games on the floor is overwhelming. I kept looking around finding something I wanted to try. Anyone check this place out? What are your favorite games?
