Silver Sprocket will be moving from the Haight to the Mission, sharing a storefront at 1038 Valencia St. (at 21st) with 1-2-3-4 GO! Records.
"We're moving in with our buds," said Silver Sprocket founder Avi Ehrlich. "It's not our own space; we're splitting it 50-50 down the middle, like a '90s sitcom. We're going to draw a line and sit on our side."
Silver Sprocket always knew its space in the Haight would be temporary, Ehrlich said.
"The landlord was absolutely fantastic to us, [but] we knew all along it was their intention to do an earthquake retrofit early in 2020," he said.
1-2-3-4 GO!'s Valencia Street storefront has a lease through spring of 2021, which will give Silver Sprocket more stability.
And despite making a good go of it in the Haight for two years, "I feel like the Mission is a bit more appropriate for what we're doing," Ehrlich said. "We're not really a Summer of Love-type store."
Despite that, he said, "it was a fantastic space and we made good use of it."
