The Mitchells Family of Stores is ready to unveil the new Wilkes Bashford.
The Westport, Conn.-based retailer, which purchased the ailing Bay Area store in 2009, has completed a yearlong, multimillion-dollar renovation at the seven-level town house on Sutter Street in San Francisco that the 46-year-old Wilkes Bashford has called home for 28 years. The reopening party tonight is expected to draw, among many others, two of the city’s mayors — current officeholder Ed Lee and the former one, Willie Brown — to nosh on gourmet Italian food, listen to the tunes of the group SF Jazz and check out the completely transformed 23,000-square-foot location.
