Peninsula Beauty Debuts in San Francisco!
Join Peninsula Beauty downtown at Four Embarcadero Center (100 Drumm St.) or at Laurel Village (3535 California St.) for their Grand Opening activities.
In 1959, a small store was opened by Hal Silverstein in downtown San Mateo. The initial idea was to provide professional beauty products to the general public such as hair color, permanents, shampoos, and conditioners. In 1975, Lori joined the family business and together they opened their second location in Bayhill Shopping center, where it still stands today after five remodels. In 1982, Lori had the chance to open her first dream store on University Ave, in Palo Alto. That was the day the first real beauty boutique type store was born in the Bay Area. That brought class and sophistication to the traditional “beauty supply store”. This was the first of many Peninsula Beauty stores transformed into a beauty store boutique/salon fit for a 5th Avenue storefront in Manhattan.
Over these past years, the vision of specialty beauty boutique has grown and many original locations outgrew their space, so Ms. Silverstein relocated them to larger locations. This paved the way for more growth for Peninsula Beauty in the niche beauty boutique market, and has helped to expand one small store into twelve and growing today. Lori has done this successfully while keeping her feet on the ground and staying very close to her neighbors and friends in the bay area. The company has warranted attention for its contributions to the community and for its take on what a beauty store/salon boutique should really be all about.
After 50+ years in the Bay Area, Peninsula Beauty is now thrilled to have beauty stores in the heart of San Francisco, now rounding out a 12-store beauty chain that has more items, and more of a “boutique” feel than ever before.
A 4th generation San Franciscan, whose family were merchants on Market Street in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s, Lori Silverstein had the opportunity to grow the family business through escalating all aspects of the company, from customer service to product selection, over these many years. Peninsula Beauty now carries over 5000 products and 200 of your favorite beauty brands. “I’m so excited to finally have stores in the city I love so much, following in my family’s footsteps. We are excited to get involved in the San Francisco community and share with our new customers what makes us uniquely different,” says Silverstein.
To celebrate this expansion in San Francisco, Peninsula Beauty will be having two Grand Opening events throughout the day on Nov. 29, 2012.
