As promised, Shinola's SoCal expansion includes rolling out three more LA boutiques, starting from the Westside. The Detroit-based company will unveil its next City of Angels outpost on Abbot Kinney next Saturday, April 9th.
Just as we predicted, the brand is moving into the space formerly occupied by The Stronghold, which relocated to a smaller boutique next door. The 2,300-square-foot shop will stock Shinola's well-crafted goods, including watches, bicycles, stationery, leather accessories, and more; plus, there'll be a listening lounge for sound-checking the brand's upcoming line of audio products.
