Orchards Shopping Center, Walnut Creek

Last summer we learned that Southern California-based Burger Lounge would be coming to the Orchards shopping center in Walnut Creek and they will be opening the last week of March. Check out their menu here. Grass-fed beef hamburger for $7.99. That seems reasonable, I look forward to trying this place out.

From an email:

Lunchboxwax is a speed-waxing salon that takes a pride in our team and unique technique. We dedicate our services to helping women (and men) feel and look their best!  Our culture and vibe is contagious, as we are chic, a little cheeky, and are intent on making every person we meet feel respected, cared for, and adored! Although LunchboxWax got its start in Boise, Idaho, we are so excited to be building the Bay Area and introduced LunchboxWax to California in 2015.

SafeAmerica Credit Union Opens in Orchards Shopping Center in Walnut Creek


Orchards Shopping Center, Walnut Creek

SafeAmerica Credit Union recently opened in the Orchards shopping center in Walnut Creek.

From their website:

SafeAmerica Credit Union is a non-profit financial cooperative, owned and operated by its members. Credit unions are not for profit organizations, unlike banks, which are in the business of making money for their shareholders. Membership entitles you to share as a “financial partner.” Rather than paying stockholders, credit unions return earnings to members in the form of higher dividends, lower loan rates and reduced transactional fees. This means you can enjoy low cost loans and higher yields on savings and investment options. This is what distinguishes the Credit Union from other financial institutions.
