The Water Cooler – What Should Replace Sport Chalet in Concord?

July 24, 2013 12:00 pm · 116 comments

The “Water Cooler” is a feature on where we ask you a question or provide a topic, and you talk about it!

The “Water Cooler” will be up Monday-Friday in the noon hour.

We told you last night that Sport Chalet on Willow Pass Rd. & Diamond Blvd. will soon close. What do you think should replace Sport Chalet?

Talk about it….

An Electric Psychedelic Pussycat Swingers Club would be nice. Yes. Let’s do that.

A homeless shelter halfway house or a christian nightclub jesus christ all day. Or a club.

Stein Mart, no question.

What I really want, a fabric store.

A fabric store which has rows and rows of fabric from 3.99 to 35.99 a yard.
A fabric store which does not have row upon row of fleece.
A fabric store which has challis, silk, cottons, hemp, double-knit, single knit, florals, pastels, dotted swiss, chintz, brocade.

Thousands of bolts all lined up by color, by weight, by content.

A fabric store which does not sell cheap, chintzy fabric, NOT JOANN’s.

I want a TRUE fabric store.

It’s a good location for centralized services – not necessarily overnight – but health, dental, food, commodities, employment retraining, back to work clothing, plus where to find this and other stuff along the same lines, – some of this is not so hard to find, but even employed people have trouble finding affordable or sliding- scale dental. And I mean just pull a tooth, not a beautiful crown or a root canal.

I could tell you (true) stories.

I love the idea of a flagship BevMo store. The one out on Oak Grove or wherever is too far out of the way and with BevMo HQ right across the street it would be a fantastic location to experiment with different layouts/products/shopping experiences/tastings etc.

@ tkatec. Are you nuts?! Joann’s IS a true fabric store. Best around …well, the only one around. But still the best.

Teacher Wannabe at #116 ~ ~ ~ Sorry, but I completely agree with jtkatec about the quality of fabric at Joann’s. I fondly remember New York Fabrics, which used to be on Contra Costa Boulevard.
