Last Days of Super7 in Japantown

On Sunday, September 19th, Super7 closed the doors to the Post Street shop it has inhabited in San Francisco’s Japantown since June of 2004. The store will re-open this Friday on Haight Street.

Removed from its Japantown microcosm, Super7 the store will now be neighbors with other toy and design shops including Kidrobot and Giant Robot. The potential to open up new eyes to Japanese vinyl is there. If you can withstand the scent of piss and patchouli, Haight/Ashbury could soon serve most of your toy-buying needs.

I picked up almost the complete set of Super7 magazine. Yes, I’ve got parquet floor.
