Toys R Us Coming to Veranda Shopping Center in Concord Files for Bankruptcy

Veranda Shopping Center, Concord

Toys R Us, which is planning to come to the new Veranda shopping center in Concord, located right next to the Willows shopping center, filed for bankruptcy today. From the USA Today article:

The bankruptcy filing may make some shoppers reluctant to make Toys R Us a destination during the upcoming holidays, and there may be gaps on some shelves if skittish suppliers decide to hold back on some deliveries. But bankruptcy could also give the toy store chain some relief, enabling it to cancel leases and abandon poorly performing locations.

I wonder if this will affect this opening?

Super Duper Burgers Coming to Veranda Shopping Center in Concord this Fall

Veranda Shopping Center, Concord

Last year we learned that the supermarket 365 by Whole Foods would be coming to the new Veranda shopping center in Concord where Chevron offices used to be, right next to Willows shopping center, and last month Inside Scoop reported that San Francisco-based Super Duper Burgers will be expanding to the Veranda as well this fall. Check out the progress in the above photo and menu here.

From their website:

Step into any Super Duper Burger, and you’ll notice we’re different. From our famous (free) house-made pickles, to the hand-painted signage, to our cheerful staff, we build our restaurants like we build our burgers—sustainably, locally, and with an unwavering commitment to quality. We work with local designers, sign painters, and artisans because it reduces our carbon footprint, and, frankly, because they’re some of the best in the world.

All our beef is humanely-raised, 100% vegetarian-fed, ground fresh daily, and sourced from family-owned ranches.

Our buns are baked to our specification by an artisan baker in San Francisco.
All of our shakes and cones are made with organic cream from Straus Family Creamery, a small, family-owned, organic farm located on the pastoral shores of Tomales Bay.
