Does anyone else think
The 405-space parking is for compact cars only?

It's not open?! It sure looks open. I've parked there twice now with absolutely no problem or indication that it's closed.

Oh, I see, this article was written *before* May 2.
But say, does anyone think that Long's Drugs is a good idea for that location?
First of all, we had a Hallmark store downtown before and it failed. There was a Hallmark on San Mateo's main drag too and it recently closed as well. There was a Long's in Willow Glen and it also failed. It's so much easier to get in and out of the other Long's -- would enough people really use this one?
The other thing is that Long's is a relatively boring store. People going out for the evening want entertaining stores with interesting and/or weird stuff to do browsing/window shopping.
I'm afraid the City of Mountain View just hasn't thought this one through.
