We should keep asking ourselves why does HD want a store in MTN View?
E PA is 7 miles, Cupertino is 5 miles Santa Clara 6 miles and Sunnyvale is 2 miles from my house. (San Antonio would be 3.1)
Contractors who drive in from 50 miles away could care less.
The Big box wants to rid of the competetion like Mintons, Sunnyvale Lumber, Pine Cone, Bruce Bauer, the Lowes that just moved into Sunnyvale and the three Orchard Supply HW near by, yes one in Mtn View.
Since we are so limited in retail space I am happy Mtn View controls what move into the area. We dont need a Coffee shop at every cornner or a Hardware store.
Where can we buy a shirt? Sears is moving, Emporium is a medical center, Mayfield Mall is a condo.
Look at our neighbors
Sunnyvale tore down the whole mall.
And Vallco upgraded the center.
We got a Wallmart
