Barnes & Noble Coming to The Veranda in Concord


The Veranda, Concord

Thanks to a reader for pointing out that according to the latest directory map Barnes & Noble is coming to the Veranda shopping center next to Banana Republic in Concord. You may remember that Barnes & Noble closed over two years ago in downtown Walnut Creek and almost five years ago in Pleasant Hill. I wonder whether they’ll change anything up to compete with Amazon as they plot their return or will they continue to push the NOOK and hope for their loyal shoppers to return.

Shabuya Coming Soon Signage up at The Veranda in Concord


The Veranda, Concord

The all you can eat SoCal-based shabu shabu restaurant Shabuya is coming to The Veranda in Concord and their Coming Soon signage is now up. Check out their menu here. Interesting that wagyu beef is included in the all-you-can eat option as I thought that was one of the most expensive items on a menu. I look forward to trying this place out since I love shabu shabu.
