If you have been by our warehouse to pick up your coffee order, you have seen how there’s not much going on near us. Our building is sandwiched between a residential block and Oakland’s municipal maintenance facility which is why we were happy to see our new neighbors, Urban Warehouse, moving in next door. Urban Warehouse is an expansion of Urban Furniture, a second-hand furniture/thrift store located a few minutes away in Oakland’s Grand Lake neighborhood. Both locations work under the umbrella of Urban University, a Oakland non-profit that delivers social change and job training.
Their hours contrast with ours as they are open on the weekends and we are open on the weekdays so we don’t see the good folks at Urban Warehouse all that often but word on the street is that their hours will be expanding to Thursdays and Fridays. If you are in West Oakland over the weekend, we encourage you to drop by and check out some amazing deals on really nice furniture.
They are just getting their feet wet here in West Oakland so there’s not much info about Urban Warehouse online yet aside from a Yelp page.
