826 National

August 24, 2009

826 National is a network of youth tutoring and writing centers based in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Brooklyn, Boston, Chicago, Ann Arbor and Seattle. To cut a long story short, the landlord of the building they wanted to use was open to the idea of a tutoring center, but the address was zoned for retail. They had no choice, according to the landlord but to sell something. Their Pirate Support Store in San Francisco is downright hilarious. You can buy everything from beard dye to some (decent) peg leg oil. Other stores include Boston’s Bigfoot Research Institute, Chicargo’s The Boring Store, Seattle’s Space Travel Supply Company, NYC’s Superhero Supply Company.
