Is anybody else appalled by the size of the BevMo sign? Is anybody else appalled that the city approved this tacky behemoth?

No to the city's approval.

I assume from your moniker that you consider this most recent addition to Burlingame Avenue to be one that will enhance the desirability of shopping in Burlingame as well as to increase property values?

It is ok that the city approved Bevmo.

Why not?

No problem with BevMo unless it causes criminal behavior or drunkeness that would not "enhance the desirability of shopping in Burlingame". Don't think it will decrease property values.

The chair store barn door has been opened in Burlingame and they are here to stay.

The market will determine if Burlingame residents want to shop BevMo or Safeway or the Wine Store for their alcohol.

Resident, you misread my initial post (as perhaps you did, too, Progress.)

I am not questioning the city's approving Bevmo.

I am questioning their approving its gargantuan, aesthetically unappealing signage, which clearly does not fit in with the rest of the avenue.

Can't stand the sign. It's too big and garish -- it doesn't fit in with the rest of the street. I don't mind there being a BevMo on the street. It's better than empty real estate. I agree residents will determine whether the store makes it or not, but the sign should go.

Yesterday, I went to the store's opening to see the inside of the store and to compare prices. I ran into several other locals doing the same thing.

Not only are BevMo's prices no lower than those of other local stores (Mollie Stone's; Safeway; the liquor store on the avenue; Longs), they are actually in some cases higher.

To be fair, the service was competent and friendly; the lighting is good; and the store is clean.

However, in light of the fact that all these qualities exist at the other Burlingame stores that carry wine, beer and liquor, and in light of the fact that BevMo's prices provide no savings to the customer, I see no advantage to shopping at BevMo.
