On modern shopping front, three great things happened in 2012.
1. Room & Board opened their first NW store at U-Village!
2. West Elm opened their first Seattle store in South Lake Union.
3. CB2 opened a store on Robson Street (Vancouver, B.C.).
1 & 2 are good news and bad news. Good news is that we can actually see the products in person, but the bad news is that now we have to pay tax due to their physical retail presence. Which store are you most excited for? As for me, it’s Room & Board! Happy modern shopping in 2013!
