WOW...Okay, how about the rest of the story...When are they planning to close?
I can't imagine anyone else waiting on the sidelines to run in and take over. Sad news for the YES to Incorporate Alamo. Losing a heavy sales tax base isn't what a new town needs. Has anyone looked around the Alamo plaza lately...too many empty store's there also.
Hope the other tenants on site have a good lease...I'm sure the property owner is not jumping with joy.

It's something that Walnut Creek residents have been craving for a long time: a downtown hardware store. Walnut Creek Hardware Co. opened this past week on Mount Diablo Boulevard, filling a need among locals who missed a convenient place to pick up just the right nail, pipe, faucet, or cordless power drill.
The 12,500-square foot store, on the site of the former Good Guys, is part of the Ace Hardware cooperative. However, it is independently owned by two long-time Walnut Creek residents, Lee Abramson and Kevin Fisher. Walnut Creek Hardware Co. is open daily, except for major holidays, like Thanksgiving and Christmas. Hours are Monday-Saturdays, 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Sundays, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. 2044 Mount Diablo Blvd., (925) 705-7500.

While I miss the "old" Yardbirds", the "new" was just a limited Home Depot. Regarding the tax base and incorporation, Yardbirds/Home Depot was closed when the data was gathered, so that the closing does not have UanyU effect on the figures regarding financial resources. It would have been nice to have the additional revenue, but it does not affect incorporation.
