What is THAT beer doing under my tree?
This morning after dropping a fare at SJC, I passed by the new BevMo on Lincoln Avenue in Willow Glen. Noticing a Grand Opening banner on the storefront I wondered how the business was faring.
Any chain store opening in Willow Glen is met with trepidation. When Longs announced wanting to locate here alarms sounded throughout the village. Everything from too much traffic to shopping carts hanging out on every corner would be the ruin of us all. Longs is now a fixture and so far Willow Glen has suffered no curses.
BevMo went through much the same. Overheard in the Glen the quivering voices–What will become of the wine shop up the Avenue?– We already have a liquor store!–Dirty men will be sitting in the gutters tossing back little brown bags. Hide the children! Hide the dogs!
