Union Square has been undergoing a lot of changes lately in terms of retail stores and one of the latest additions to the neighborhood is Crate & Barrel's lower end store, CB2. The San Francisco Store will be just around the corner from its big sister and it's a great place to get furniture that looks great but can take a few nicks from kids, pets, dorm living, etc. as well as a good place to find accent pieces that fit into anyone's home. Mostly modern, CB2 sells furniture and accessories.
CB2 is also having a 50% off sale right now online, so don't wait for the store to open to check them out.
