I think it would be great to add more fun shops downtown.....don't we have enough restaurants and banks?

I’ve always been curious about “The Tack Room” signage associated with the Christesen’s building. I assumed that it was a bar that closed down. Is there a story there?

We can always hope for some more restaurants or shops but my money is on real estate offices, another bank or a hair/nail salon!
Might be time to put some restrictions on what can go downtown, Livermore has no trouble attracting decent shops and restaurants, what’s their secret?

A tack room has to do with horse gear; a room (typically) in or attached to a stable for the storage and maintenance of riding tack (such as saddles and bridle).
Like the owner said, once they moved the majority of horses from the fairgrounds, most of his business pertaining to horse gear dried up.

Thanks, Ben J.
I guess I should have indicated that I knew what “a tack room” was. I just thought that it was only found in a stable. I guess “The Tack Room” was the name of that part of Christesen’s dedicated to the sale of tack.

It just sounded like it might be the name of a bar for horse enthusiasts, as well..
