What a relief!! A victory for residents! This definitely would have caused a huge mess on the east side of town.

We will continue to do our shopping at Richert's on Sunol.

Thank you to all the people who worked hard for a long period to accomplish this. I wasn't one of them, but I'll benefit from their hard work, so thank you.

What I don't understand is why we need another Home Depot? They are soooo lame that they teach people how to do repairs in their homes & yet they don't even do their own in store repairs/facilities? Just like Orchard Supply they use this 2bit construction company to even change out their light bulbs. Then the construction company takes them for a financial ride and double bills them for equiptment that they already purchased on a previous job & bump up the hours so it costs them even more money. Then they pass these costs to us the consumers. How can we trust that they even know what they are doing when they can't even replace their own light bulbs or to use a simple plunger? I guess the old adage of 'Those who can't do teach' applies. Or maybe Home Depot & Orchard Supply have so much money to throw around that they don't mind throwing it away frivilously? I say boycott Home Depot & Orchard Supply until they are competent enought to change a lightbulb all by themselves.
