Add Dave & Buster's to the list of businesses that don't want to come to this hole or just want out!!! How about we get another smoke shop, hair salon, or tatoo parlor?

Who in their right mind would go there. Can you imagine the people hanging out in front of this place. Talk about unsafe. Robbery, car jackings, muggings, assaults, etc. Vallejo is not a safe place and is getting worse. No business in their right mind would move here so their customers can get robbed at night. A business only open during daytime hours located near Costco might have a chance. Staying open after dark for get about it.

Nice Idea having a 'Dave & Busters' on Mare Island would only happen if Lennar Properties (current managers of Mare Island)would get developement moving on the proposed Tiburonesque style Community Homes on NE Shore of the old Shipyard between the Causeway and the HWY 37 Bridge and the large Community Park and Sports Field on the NW Corner. Once that kind of developement and investment gets going, then and ONLY then will companies take a serious look at Vallejo!

Young man: Vallejo has larger problems than not having a Dave and Buster. I admire your passion and ambition but take my advice and pursue your educational goals. Dave and Buster are not going to set up shop in an area with too few police, blighted demographics, a dysfunctional city government, high crime, and the potential of having to urinate on your establishment if it were to catch fire due to limited fire protection. Would you open your own business in this type of enviromnent?

Of course Dave and Buster's is not going to return your phone call.

You are a less than mediocre small town rag "journalist." They have more important things to do.

" We are focused on major metro areas in which we currently lack store presence: Boston, San Francisco, Seattle, etc. With stores in Milpitas and now Roseville,,," "Major metro areas"? OK, obvious BS from Dave and Buster's PR flack.

Maybe the hate-filled misanthropes who infest these comments boards whining about how awful Vallejo is amd how much they hate living here should get the hell out? Might I suggest maybe Milpitas or Roseville?

How about putting a gun store at the old K-Mart location?

I'll bet it would do a bumper business in Vallejo.

Oh ya, and the many "medical" marijuana dispensaries! Hehehe! We wonder why the City is failing? Can't have established businesses until you provide public safety. Then the flocks will gather and spend and spend and spend!

Most of us can't leave this city because we are under water with our mortgages. I for one will not default on my loan so I just have to suck it up and stay here. Dave and Busters can use the Home Depot building once Lowes runs them into the ground. I think all new places like this should stay away from the downtown and Mare Island because there is not anough traffic. Plus it is the Solano county section 8 capital.

Dave & Buster's locations offers traditional entertainment options including: pocket billiards,(!!!!, is that a mini form of billards or is that a twist on the popular entertainment played by many), shuffleboard tables, a "Show Room" or other special event rooms; which are designed ...

I am not familiar with D&B, seems to be a fun spot though! Any new restaurant would be a welcome addition for Vallejo. I am still waiting for all those "eating places" who promised to open in the Target Center as well as in the Plaza by Costco, none have materialized to date!

What Vallejo needs downtown is a cheap wh(o)rehouse with a bar that serves food and distilled spirits.

Add some big-screen tv's for watching sports and the place will be a huge hit and tax $$$ generator.

An Archie McPhee at the old K-Mart location would be splendid.

I respect your enthusiasm, but Vallejo is full of ghetto trash that will destroy any chance of a sucessful business here.

Even if every one of Vallejo's 140,000 people signed the facebook page it wouldn't make a difference. Same way with the facebook page for a Trader Joe's in Vallejo. These companies are successful and those successes are based on a track record of success based on careful demographic market research not speculation. Vallejo does not meet the criteria of either company and the only ones to blame for this are the complete failures of city leaders we have had for decades. You get what you elect and when you don't vote you are just hanging on for the rough ride.

If it isn't a:

Smoke shop
Liquor store
Discount grocery outlet
.99 cent store
Goodwill

It will NOT come to Vallejo.
