It's seems like every time we turn around, there's a retail shakeup in Hayes Valley. Nida has closed, Reliquary is moving, and the African Market is in trouble, just to name a few recent changes. Now, after 24 years in the neighborhood, Hoodline tells us men's clothing store Nomads is closing its doors. The store's last day of business will be April 20. Until then, look for deeply discounted merchandise—they carry brands including Fidelity Denim, Fred Perry and Jack Spade—from 30 to 80% off.
In its farewell letter posted at the store, the owners write: "23 years and nine months ... is a mighty good run in one place for any Nomad." They make an excellent point, so let's not be too sad. We'll keep you posted when we hear who will be moving into the space.
