ANTHEM Home, a new home furnishings store at 889 Santa Cruz Ave. in downtown Menlo Park, is holding a grand opening party Thursday, Sept. 7, from 5 to 8 p.m.
There will be hors d'oeuvres catered by Draeger's and wine tasting. Parking is available at the rear of the store. Go to Eventbrite to register for the party.
The company sees the Menlo Park store as an expansion from its San Francisco operations in the Presidio Heights neighborhood, according to spokesperson Hilary Sessions.
The company's founder, Janelle Leovner, has two storefronts there: Anthem Interior and Anthem Bed & Bath. She has also opened Anthem Design Group, an interior design division of the company, to operate in Menlo Park.
Anthem says it plans to open a second Menlo Park location, Anthem Gifts, at 883 Santa Cruz Ave., #4, in the next few weeks.
"We decided to be a neighborhood store and part of a small community down the Peninsula like we are on Sacramento Street in the city," Ms. Loevner said in a press release.
