Noe Valley's Buttons Candy Bar Closing; Video Wave To Remain

Buttons Candy Bar, Noe Valley's sugar-forward emporium of all things sweet, is preparing to shut down operations at 4027 24th St.

Open since October 2013, the store now bears signs announcing its closure, which tipster Marcos should happen between the end of September and mid-October. "It's been sweet. Buttons is leaving. All fixtures for sale," reads one sign posted in the window. 

Buttons began sharing its space with longtime Noe Valley video store Video Wave a year ago, after Video Wave solicited community help in finding a new location, and neighbors suggested the shared-space idea. Video Wave, which originally opened on Castro Street in 1983, is now one of the city's older video rental shops.

According to signage, though Buttons is closing up shop, Video Wave does not intend to close its doors:

Buttons Candy Bar will move to "transitional hours" of operation as it winds things down, and will be closed Monday-Wednesday, and open 10:30am-6:30pm Thursday-Saturday, and 10am-6pm Sunday. "Even though Buttons will be closed Monday, Tuesday and Wednesdays, our pre-packaged products will be available at Video Wave for purchase during their regular business hours," reads a sign at the register. 

Thanks to tipsters Allie P., Marcos V. and R.H.
