Watch Workers Build the Hayes Valley Alternative Apparel Store

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

We've kept you up to date on the new Alternative Apparel store in Hayes Valley, which opened in December 2013. Often these new spaces seem to appear out of nowhere—a papered over storefront is suddenly, magically, a beautiful place to consume eco-friend and stylish clothing. But now, Alternative is giving us a peek at how it all happened during the late days of last year. Witness workers creating a new ceiling, stenciling the floor, bringing in the merhandise, and everything else it took to create such a welcoming space—and that they did it in just about a month's time is pretty impressive.
