Great news for sneakerheads--the new Nike Store in San Ramon, California is officially open! The new Nike store, known as Nike by San Ramon, has been in the works for almost a year. Construction began a few months ago at City Center Bishop Ranch, but the exact opening date of the store remained unclear.
Now, Nike By San Ramon has officially opened its doors to the public. You can stop by to check out apparel, shoes, and more. Nike By San Ramon is designed to be a "lab" style store. That means that it's smaller than many other Nike stores, and features lots of new products, digital tools to test out, and more. The idea is that customers can experiment with new Nike offerings. The store is also meant to have a more direct connection to its local community.
The new Nike store is located on the bottom level of City Center Bishop Ranch. It's right next to Alexander Square, and to the popular tables where people often gather to eat food from City Center's restaurants. The new Nike store complements several existing clothing and apparel stores at the popular East Bay shopping center, including Gap and Anthropologie.
If you're a big fan of sneakers--or you want to try some of Nike's newer offerings like athletic wear and other apparel--stop by the store. It's smaller than I expected, but for sneaker fans or Nike enthusiastic, it's still likely to provoke quite a lot of excitement and love. Grab some shoes, go for a fun, and then maybe grab a gelato at City Center afterward.
