Domus, the popular kitchen and home accessories retailer, will reopen its doors in downtown Pleasanton this morning after a three-year absence.
Domus (www.domusonline.com), which closed its Los Gatos store in May after 41 years, returns to its former location at 652 Main St. with plans for a formal grand opening celebration in late August.
"We are so delighted to be back in Pleasanton, offering a wide selection of unique and everyday items for our East Bay customers," said owner Margaret Smith, who has negotiated a long-term lease for the 11,000-square-foot store. "The community has made us feel so welcome already."
The Pleasanton store, which first opened in 1998, has been vacant since a couple that had leased the operation from Smith retired in 2008. Another Domus is located at 1395 Lincoln Ave. in the Willow Glen section of San Jose.
Smith said customers from all over the Bay Area shop at her store and at Domus online for kitchenware, home accessories, toys, books, stationery and other items. San Francisco Magazine once described Domus as a unique blend of Williams-Sonoma, Pier 1, Pottery Barn, Papyrus and Crate and Barrel.
The Pleasanton store can be reached by telephone at (925) 485-0501.
