Oakland’s Jack London Square adds retailer, restaurant
OAKLAND — Jack London Square has added a clothing and gifts store, along with a Burmese restaurant, to its mix of shops and dining establishments, executives said Monday.
Oakland Supply Co. and Grocery Cafe are the newest retailers for Jack London Square, a retail, restaurant and office complex perched on Oakland’s waterfront, Jack London Square officials announced Monday.
Jack London Square, a 434,000-square-foot destination center, is comprised of three office buildings, three retail buildings, restaurants and three land parcels. The center also has retail connected with the offices and a parking structure.
Oakland Supply Co. offers local wares from Oakland, including clothing, gifts and accessories. The retailer held a grand opening this past weekend.
“We’ve long felt the pull of the waterfront,” said Angela Tsay, chief executive officer of Oakland Supply Co. “Bringing retail back to this part of Oakland is a nice complement to the already bustling bar, restaurant and entertainment scene here in Jack London Square.”
Grocery Cafe will offer a walk-in and banquet menu that will include Burmese-inspired meat, fish and salad dishes. Grocery Cafe is relocating from East Oakland. The restaurant is due to open May 29.
“Oakland has always had a special place in my heart, so I am excited to be reopening at Jack London Square,” said William Lue, owner of Grocery Cafe.
