Vallejo's city leaders will screw around with Lowes, and American Canyon will get yet another store.

this would be wonderful
not only for vallejo but for us consumers as lowe's really is a fantastic store unlike home depot which is not consumer friendly and is so unorganized.

lets hope that they decide to build it.

Oh Lord.. I pray that the city council does not screw this one up like they have so many others...but I'm wary that they will in some way find a way to chase Lowe's out of town.

The City Council will screw this up just like everything else. They are going to make Lowes jump trough their hoops and Lowes is going to back out...watch! When Lowes leaves town they will blame it on something or someone other than themselves..

Those employees who have this task should be fired if they screw this up and includes elected officials. Gomes and Schively shut your mouths and let this happen please.

Too close to Home Depot. They ought to move to the former Wal-Mart site.

I actually was about to agree with you except "Ozzie and funded four keep quite and don't mess this up like you did with the Touro cancer center."

Not really. It's better that they are just down the street from Home Depot so that when you want to comparison shop, you won't have to drive all over town and that means prices will be better for us.

Great news although I agree, too close to Home Depot, could put them out and then we have the status quo with a different vacant store.

Although I can't stand HD. I'm looking forward to shopping at Lowes. I miss Yardbirds.

I've lived here for 2 years now and I still wonder what happened to this town. How can a town that has an amusement park have nothing to offer, other than that? We go to Vacaville or Fairfield, for everything outside of basic needs. And that's a shame.

Either the city is corrupt or just isn't capable of making good decisions. Maybe both.

Ya, bring Lowes in. It's a good FIRST step. And put it where the old Walmart used to be.

For 30 years the top priority of this City has been City employees. It is reflected in our spending , our charter(binding arbitration), and the fact that there is little else this city has to offer its citizens.

I agree. Napa and AC don't have a Lowes; and many of our public safety personnel lives in Napa. Being at the old Walmart would have attracted all of Vallejo's City workers as they drive home to their nice home in another city.

I agree that the location should be not too close to Home Depot. We don't want to drive HD out of business. But more importantly, it looks like the city is taking an economic development opportunity SERIOUSLY for a change! I'm sure they've got the message now that we can't afford to be picky or obstructionist in getting new business into this town.

No, this is the end of the end of Automall Parkway.

Great news! But, each time I drive to American Canyon and shop at WalMart I shudder when I think of how the City of Vallejo could be earning the sales tax revenue. I truly do not understand the logic of not allowing WalMart to build a new store where K-Mart use to exist. What a waste of space!

The reason that Lowes choose to be closer to Home Depot is based on the fact that they need be more convenient for the people living in Benecia to access this future store.

Lowes positions itself in the consumer market segment as a marginaly higher grade alternative to Home Depot. They need the higher personal incomes of Benecia home owners to make its business model work here in Vallejo.

So where it would be more advantagous for Vallejo to have Lowes locate in the old WalMart or K Mart or Mervyns or any other large and empty West Side location in Vallejo ,remember,Lowes won't go there. So City Council don't push that desire on them or they will walk.
