Now Open: Piazza Sempione

I know there are several regular readers of this blog who have been wondering what the status is with Piazza Sempione.  The upscale Milanese retailer took the space at 34 East Oak Street formerly occupied by Sugar Magnolia and covered it up with a big wooden facade bearing the cryptic opening date “soon.”

We’re happy to report that Piazza Sempione opened over the weekend, and appears to be doing brisk business.  It’s good to have another retail hole filled on Oak Street.
