Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to Vox.com, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.
Via the Racked tipline, we've received word that a business license has been applied for which would allow a company called New Age Nail Studio to operate out of the vacant Europa bookstore. A quick search unearths a New Age Nail Salon on Telegraph Hill in San Francisco which we've confirmed has no part in this venture (whomp). Europa moved out on September 1 and now does business out of their warehouse in Skokie.
