As part of its growing expansion of offerings, City Center Bishop Ranch in San Ramon hosted the debut of two new businesses this month, both featuring high-tech offerings that aren’t found at most Tri-Valley shopping centers.

Sandbox VR opened a permanent location on the second floor of City Center, and was joined by e-bike pop-up Pedego Electric Bikes. The new additions are the latest in the burgeoning City Center retail and entertainment hub, which officials, developers and residents hope will help foster a central community area for the city of San Ramon.
