Speaking about his new role (at around the 1:24:20 mark in the video above) Forbes said he spent the last 10 months preparing to run the upcoming Supreme store in San Francisco, flying around to the different branches and working at them. “They’re opening in the fall in S.F. They’ve been doing a lot to get the store ready. We’ll see what happens,” said Forbes. “We kind of called each other. It just happened. I’ve been observing. I’ve been a fan for a long time.”
The new location was announced in April 2018, when the brand sent out invites for a meet-up with its new neighbours. Later in December, sources reported that the Supreme San Francisco store would cover 10,000 square-feet and be located at Market at Sixth, right round the corner from the Thrasher retail store. It’s now said that the branch will finally open later this year during the FW19 season.
