New J.Crew Store Opens in Emeryville
Can't say it's the best timing in the world, or that I even want to buy their stuff anymore since the quality hasn't been so great, but if you're desperate for more places to shop in the East Bay, you can now add J.Crew to your list of stop-offs at Emeryville's Bay Street Mall. The store opened March 17, and to celebrate is offering $25 off any purchase of $150 or more (through the end of the month). The store carries both men's and women's clothing, so you can pretend you're doing something practical, like buying your husband a new pair of boxers.
Where: 5616 Bay Street, 510-450-2548.
