Shop Talk: Snazzy cycling

Cycling studio, capacious containers and many, many tutoring centers are new Midpeninsula dwellers

INDOOR CYCLING AT STANFORD ... An indoor cycling studio is riding into Stanford Shopping Center, with construction underway. SoulCycle, which started in New York in 2006, is known for creating a kind of cardio-sanctuary for participants, where riders pedal by candlelight in a dimly lit studio. The Stanford location will be its third in the Bay Area. The 2,800-square-foot space on the El Camino Real side of the mall will have 50 bikes for exercisers, along with locker rooms, showers and a retail store.

MORE OPENINGS AT THE MALL ... Also at Stanford was the recent opening of the Container Store, which took over the Andronico's space next to Nordstrom. This Container Store location is the fifth in the area and the 63rd in the country; the store donated 10 percent of its opening-weekend sales to TheatreWorks. Meanwhile, American Girl, known for its line of dolls and accessories, has scheduled its opening weekend for Nov. 16 and 17, with balloon artists, face painters and gifts. The two-level, 15,000-square-foot store is the first American Girl store in Northern California and the 16th in the country. In addition to selling dolls and products, the store will have a hair salon for its dolls and a bistro that serves lunch and dinner.
