Sandal store opening on Higuera

The Southern California–based retail company Flip Flop Shops will open its newest location in downtown San Luis Obispo.

The sandal store will be at 858 Higuera St., where House of Bread was located for 13 years until it moved into a larger space at 299 Marsh St. in 2009. Since then, the former bakery space inside a historic building on Higuera Street has remained unoccupied.

The building is currently being remodeled to take it from bread shop to shoe shop.

Flip Flop Shops is expected to open sometime in late December or early January.
