“Hello Neighbor,” posted Book Soup bookstore via a tweet on on their official Twitter account. The post included a photo of the new up and coming Supreme Store WeHo located across the street, which, if all goes according to plan, will be opening later this week on Thursday, February 16, 2022, in the former home of the Tower Records Store at 8801 Sunset Boulevard.
As the 16th draws closer, so do the completions to the building, which is still empty inside, but its famous and heavily sought after Supreme boxed signage is already on full display outside of the building.
Three security guards were on standby at the main entrance of the brand new building. One of them said, as far as he knows, Thursday is the official opening.
According to reports, official promotional posters are coming to the Greater Los Angeles Area and a Supreme chopper has been flying around Los Angeles and past the Hollywood Sign as part of a social media campaign to get everyone excited over the new Supreme West Hollywood store opening on the world-famous Sunset Strip.
The City of West Hollywood’s eTrack-it portal, there was an inspection done on Friday, February 11, 2023. at 9:55:32. with some minor corrections that will most likely not delay the grand opening next week.
The construction of the new West Hollywood Supreme Store began on, Monday February 14, 2022. According to Aaron Green of Afriat Consulting Group, a timeline set last year stated that the buildout was supposed to be completed by August 2022.
Newmark leasing agent Jay Luchs, who represents the site, told the Beverly Press that everything was on schedule late last month. A construction worker also confirmed that the store will be opening sometime at the end of this month.
The site received some pushback from local neighbors when the entire building was gutted and the Tower Records sign was removed, even though it wasn’t the original sign (according to Luchs, the Tower Records intellectual property holder did not want their logo on the West Hollywood Supreme Store).
The Supreme West Hollywood store opens as items drop for the new season, such as the Supreme/Kurt Cobain tee featuring the legendary musician, Kurt Cobain. No details to what the tee look like yet, or many items dropping soon, which is all part of the hype.
