Sources tell us that Simply Chic and GNC are closing. Can't say we're suprised. Simply Chic has been clearing out merchandise and fixtures for months but denies they're going out of business. When asked, GNC also denies it (but when have you ever seen anyone one there?). So still just rumors.
With all the spaces turning over on 24th St we wonder: what does Noe Valley need?
More Nails/Waxing? (Nooooo....!)
Restaurants (no more Conditional Use permits -- can this be changed?)
Realtors? (Not a value-add)
Baby stroller parts/repair?
What do you leave the neighborhood for? Since Whole Foods is opening later this year, now is the time for new retail to establish itself. What should it be? Input in the comments, please.
