U-Mart: Umami Mart’s New Store Within a Store

Last week, Umami Mart (815 Broadway), Old Oakland’s uber-stylish purveyor of Japanese barware and teaware, announced its newest project: a konbini (or Japanese-style convenience store) that they’ll be setting up in the back section of their shop. As first reported by Inside Scoop, the store-within-a-store, which owners Kayoko Akabori and Yoko Kumano have dubbed U-Mart, is currently still in the planning stages, but is expected to launch with an opening party that’s scheduled for Tuesday, June 25.
