San Francisco-based bag brand Timbuk2 is opening a new flagship store in NoHo, one of two maiden outposts for the company on the East Coast. Site chosen is 325 Lafayette Street, previously occupied by furniture retailer Shimna.

According to the press copy, the space will “showcase Timbuk2’s entire product line of more than 100 styles of bags and accessories, Factory 2 (an innovative and interactive in-store bag customizer), collaborative events for the neighborhood and a complimentary bike share program.”

Construction on the store began last week. The biker friendly Timbuk2 will open shop on October 15 (Saturday).

Except for Bite, that triangular retail stretch on Lafayette Street just north of Houston doesn’t see crazy daytime foot traffic. Turnover seems fairly consistent. Shimna departed the area over the summer after four years, and resettled in Brooklyn. Pressed Juicery and Jacques Torres Chocolate are relative newcomers.
