New Outfit for the Castro
Walking through the Castro yesterday evening I noticed some guys working in the old Injeanious space (432 Castro Street), bringing the long vacant retail space back to life. I took a peek through the windows and saw Outfit branding on the wall with their signature metal on wood decor. Outfit operates two other high-end retail clothing shops in the Castro (463 Castro Street and 4079 18th Street).
I called one of the stores this morning to find out when they were opening this new location and if the new shop was replacing another shop in the Castro or was in addition to their other locations. The guy on the phone could not tell me much, but he did hint that the two other locations would stay open while they launched the third and that eventually one of the old stores would be closed. No firm opening date was provided, but expect the new Outfit to open by the end of the month.
This former Injeanious space is much larger than the current shops (probably larger combined even) and with the new Castro streetscape set to be completed in the Fall, the new location will be a sweet spot for shoppers who come into the Castro.
