I would love to Shop Mountain View and keep my tax money in the city, unfortunately I keep finding myself headed to downtown Los Altos because they have a better selection of shops and their streets are cleaner. In downtown Los Altos, I can take care of all my shopping needs...go to the bank; get massages, facials and beauty supplies at a nice salon; purchase gifts and cards at the card shop or several of the cute little shops; purchase china or kitchen gadgets; or shop at Chico's. Downtown Mountain View offers nothing along these lines.
Also, have you taken a look at the streets in downtown Mountain View? Try walking downtown on a Sunday morning. The streets are littered especially with cigarette butts outside of the bars.
City officials...take a look at what's going on and help us Shop Mountain View!
