The transformation of the Crocker Galleria continues—last night city supervisor David Chiu cut the ribbon for Under One Roof, a housewares and gifts retailer that benefits HIV and AIDS service organizations. The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence blessed the new space, which will officially open for business on April 1.
The Under One Roof opening follows the recent launch of Tomboy Tailors in the Crocker Galleria, and more merchants are coming to the glass-ceilinged FiDi space over the next several months. The folks behind Under One Roof opened their first location in the Castro in 1991, and they say the move will allow more money to go to their charities because rent at the Crocker space is a fraction of what they paid in the Castro. Coming soon, look for Under One Roof pop-up shops throughout the city, an online shop, and a speaker's series in the Castro, where they hope to maintain a presence.
