Nestled at the foot of the Berkeley Hills, directly across from the world renown Claremont Resort & Spa is RedBird, a 1,000 sq ft store catering to women of Berkeley and the east bay of the San Francisco metropolitan area. Owner Karen Park has brought together an eclectic mix of clothing and accessories unique to this urban college town to satisfy the desires of the educated and well traveled women who appreciate quality and fine taste. Ms. Park had previously spent 20 years as a retail manager in San Francisco for tony retailers Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue and I Magnin and opened stores on Maiden Lane for Jil Sander, Marc Jacobs and Joan Weinstein’s Ultimo. Moving to Berkeley was the incentive to open her own store, but not before finding the perfect location where she could create an environment where shoppers could experience the textures, colors and designs that were carefully edited to fulfill her vision. In business for 13 years, RedBird has created a buzz and gained a reputation not only in the Bay Area but nationwide for being a “must experience” destination for shoppers and was recently selected by the San Francisco Chronicle as a Top 100 Shop in the San Francisco Bay Area.
