We have always shopped at Richert's lumber, and I have always admired the fact that they remained closed on Sunday, I am sorry to see that they have caved to the pressure to open on Sunday.

Hardware stores are the place to go when things get busted. Well, no hardware store is going to repair our broken state and city pension debts. Both Calpers and Calstrs are flat-out busted, if not today then undoubtedly sometime in the future, which makes matters just a matter of time before the tsunami of bankruptcy and insolvency washed over the shores of our households and robs your grandchildren or, if not your grandchildren, your great grandchildren of their future. We have to do something!

Very nice store. I'm no fan of Ace branded tools, but the rest of the stuff there is great quality. Being open Sundays is a major improvement!

Arnold, this is not about your inadequacies, that is, projection of "no hardware store is going to repair our broken state." This is about a small business making a go of adding value to our community.

Leave out non-relative stuff, please.

The president of Ace's correct name is John Venhuizen. Please make a modest effort to check facts before publishing stories. Good luck to the Richert family on this enhanced store.
