    I agree about the bad sight lines!

    Also, if you want to make your way over to the tunnel under 395 to catch a bus it is a tad more inconvenient.

    Used to love this store. The curmudgeon in me is not a huge fan of the remodel. I liked that I could get everything I needed quickly in the old store.
