Joe: Why is this a sad day for San Ramon? Considering that the city already has every conceivable big box retailer, fast food chain, office parks, etc., I fail to see what makes this store opening a sad day in particular.

Just another store in a city that approves every possible retail and office proposal.

Also, why would you be you against paying less for groceries? I don't get it.

That's great that SR will have increased tax revenues coming in, better than a empty boxy store. Plus walmart gives us the opportunity to buy items at competitive prices. Good for everyone...
Joe, if you don't like them, then go and shop elewhere..
