    Do we really need a Burlington coat factory in san leandro? I mean it’s great that new development is occurring but what we really need is a Sprouts.

    If you want a Sprouts in San Leandro – you can contact them and tell them. Make sure you have a specific site in mind before you talk with them.


    Here is their criteria.
    At Sprouts we look for build-to-suit or existing buildings in free-standing or shopping center locations that range are approximately 30,000 square feet. Sites should be easily accessible, visible and convenient. Additionally, all sites should be equipped with excellent signage and have a minimum of 140 parking spaces.

      That’s the city’s responsibility to advocate for new retailers – hence they are elected and paid administrative level salaries + pensions.

    Yesterday I had some articles on hold until closure. I returned within the hour and the merchandise had been removed from the holding counter. I must say ” the manager, i didn’t get her name but her shift had started and took control of the matter to located the merchandise (two purses and a Shaw). I wan to say THANKS and she was very patient with me because i through someone had purchased the items. The items were located within an hour (thanks for the security camera being monitored) they saw who removed the items and tracked them before placing back in area. I will say she is a GREAT MANAGER and thanks for every thing. A satisfied customer!!!
