Greatest To Be Missed
The Big Longs on 51st
Big Longs had been a go-to everything general store for the East Bay for what feels like forever. Even though it was corporate, it was completely tailored to the needs, wants, and desires of East Bay shoppers. This past year, new changes have been felt the most; a major downshift in quality, quantity, and variety — AND ewww another discount card to file in your wallet. RIP Big Longs, CVS just doesn’t do you justice. — YoKaren
